So sad.  Below is from Google's cache of

Teachers go to butterfly school

The meeting took place at Riverside Public School in Port Credit, over 2 days and well attended.
When I heard of it had to attend, if only for one day.

Ah, where does this lead to?

The door & question.


Over views of a very well laid out gym.


More ...

A very nice Monarch quilt coat.



Displays around the gym.


First up was learning to feed



Those in waiting.


The tables were set-out for the different stages of their life.


The egg stage.

Being born
real small.

Small caterpillars.

Molting - caterpillars do it 4 or 5 times, slip out of their skin and pop off their faces.
Between each is call an "instar", so in terms of age, 3th or 4th instar.

The last molt is when the caterpillar turns into a chrysalis.
In fact, the casing that the caterpillar turns into is a chrysalis that is not spun,
it is a skin that hardens into a shell.

Check out the hooks that the chrysalis uses to hook on to the silk, it hangs from.
Seen this before?



Those who attended got first hand instructions on how to make Monarch Butterfly enclosures
keep their hard work.
