Sage Creek Second Grade Releases Butterflies

The second grade students at Sage Creek Elementary awaited, with great anticipation, 
the day of their butterfly release. Miss Sayers had collected Monarch caterpillar eggs 
over the summer and the students then watched the caterpillars hatch, eat and grow, and 
transform from the larval stage (caterpillar) into the pupal stage (chrysalis) and then into 
the beautiful Monarch butterfly. It was a real treat for the students and greatly enhanced 
their learning of the way local animals develop during their life cycle. (More pictures on our facebook page.)
