Up close and personal with butterflies

The students in Laura Geer’s first grade class at Ringwood Christian School had a unique experience this spring. While studying insects in science class, they were able to watch the metamorphosis of caterpillars. Geer set up a butterfly garden in the classroom which the children could observe. When the caterpillars arrived, they were quite small, but they quickly grew and made chrysalides. The students were able to watch the butterflies hatch and see their wings stretch and dry out. The butterflies remained in the classroom for a few days and then the students released them. During the release, West Milford resident Christopher Timmins, shown here, found that his butterfly actually stayed on his hand before taking flight! It was an amazing experience for these young students. What better way to learn about something than to truly have a “hands on” experience!
