1st Grade Butterflies

After saying a prayer for safe travels, SJS 1st graders released their butterflies into the wild on Friday afternoon. The 1st grade students have watched these classroom pets go from caterpillars to chrysalises to butterflies as part of their science studies, journaling the their observations throughout the transformation.  Next, the students will be writing stories about where they think the butterflies have traveled to and what they would do while there.  Here are some pictures from the butterfly release on Friday (click pictures to enlarge).
