Monarch Butterflies

The life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly is a wonderful event for the children to experience. They witness one of the wonders of life as it happens, taking in the changes as the caterpillar grows, enters the various phases of metamorphosis and eventually turn into a butterfly. They gain so much from this experience: patience, observation, appreciation of life, beauty. This sparks their interest in other work around the classroom: writing, coloring, crafts, stories… This is how we Montessori.

We had such a wonderful time observing the Monarch first hand, we did not want you to miss out. We made a short video for you, enjoy!
