We love butterflies!!!



From Caterpillar 2 Chrysalis

Each year our class raises and observes Painted Lady Butterflies to learn about animal life cycles.  It is often difficult to catch the precise moment when metamorphosis occurs,  This year with the use of iCreate to Educate’s SAM Animation software, we were able to capture many different stages of metamorphosis in our butterflies’ life cycle.  This is a time lapse video of one of our caterpillars forming a chrysalis.  Using SAM Animation software and the iCubie webcam (also by iCreate to Educate) we set up our computer to take pictures of our caterpillars over the weekend.   The computer took over 5000 photos!  157 of them captured one our caterpillars in action.  Click on the movie above to see this amazing process.
