Types of Butterflies......
We finished up the year talking about different types of butterflies. We learned about monarch, swallowtail, blue morpho and peacock butterflies. We talked about the migration process of some butterflies. Butterflies are known for migrating to warmer weather, flying many miles. The largest butterflies come from the swallowtail family. The swallowtail caterpillar has eyes on its body to make it look like a snake so it can scare away predators. They have stripes and tails to help hide in the tall grasses and in trees. We discussed the life span of butterflies as well. Butterflies only live for a few months. The peacock butterfly has one of the longest spans, and lives to be about 11 months old. The peacock butterfly has eye-spots on its wings to look scary similar to the swallowtail caterpillar. We also worked on letters B, N and Q.
