Room 201 at Crouse CLC, like many preschool classrooms harvested butterflies this Spring. Using a hands on approach, here are a few highlights:

On May 17th, our caterpillars made their cocoons’.  On that same day we made cocoons’ out of Paper Mache and balloons.

We got to break open our cocoons that we made, and guess what was inside?
