Last week Rm 14 drew a bug to learn more about . That critter was a Queen Bee with a blue mark. After drawing it we had to out line our picture with a black crayon. Dying was the funnest bit of the Art work. When it had dried up, Miss King glued it on to a black paper to display.

During a warm sunny day there was a butterfly that was laying a egg. Seven days later the egg hatched into a caterpillar. The baby caterpillar was hungry it went and looked for its food.
Caterpillars eat milk weeds to get fat and they need allot of food to transform. They eat milk leaves that are milk weeds because if its enemy eats them the milk weeds that they ate when they were little caterpillars will make the enemy spit them out and the enemy will never taste a butterfly again. As it turns into a chrysalis it wait for two weeks.
After not moving in the chrysalis for two weeks the caterpillar has transformed into a beautiful butterfly. As it comes out it waits for its wings to dry up before it can explore. When it wings dry it is able to have pretty and cool adventures.
