Monarch Caterpillars

Both of our Monarch caterpillars turned into a chrysalis this week.
After reading a book about Monarch butterflies, we learned that it will take about two weeks for a butterfly to come out of a chrysalis.

Our class guessed when ours will turn into butterflies and whether they will be a male or female.
Here are the results.

The butterflies will come out on ...
Wednesday, September 14  (7 people)
Thursday, September 15 (2 people)
Friday, September 16 (9 people)

Chrysalis #1 will be...
male (4 people)
female (16 people)

Chrysalis #2 will be ...
male (5 people)
