Caterpillars to Butterflies

Fourth graders describe the life cycle of a butterfly and design and maintain a classroom insect habitat. For this several months-long project, they raise caterpillars indoors in aquariums after identifying their creatures in a field guide. Once the butterflies emerge, they observe them for a few days and then release them.
