There is a chrysalis in my classroom....

Well there is! I didnt have my camera on me today (duh!) but our chrysalis 'cage' and live chrysalis arrived yesterday while I wasn't there. We were lucky enough to be in class when the chrysalis opened today and my kids went nuts! I will post some pics tomorrow :) For the Aussie teachers out there, we ordered them through http://www.butterflyadventures.com.au/butterflychrysaliskit.html and there weren't that expensive. once you have bought the kit, the enclosure is yours to keep and you can just keep 'reordering' the chrysalis. Give it a go!

I'm also thinking about inviting YOU to blog here! If this is something you would be interested in, leave me a comment here or send me an email b_beynon@hotmail.com


  1. Isn't it amazing to watch?? I am always just as fascinated as my students are! There are some clips on YouTube with the whole life cycle if you are interested in showing your students (just watch them first).
    I'd love for you to join my first linky party on Friday called Friday Photo Dump. It's for all of the pictures that didn't make it to your blog posts but you still want to show off! =)
