Caterpillar study

With the donation of a small swan plant and the eye of one of the teachers spotting the first young caterpillar, a group of children showed a keen interest in learning more. The following video expresses the different ways the children problem solved how best to care for our precious new caterpillar. Their interest then ignited a larger study into the life cycle of caterpillars which is ongoing.
