Today was the day when I came to your classes to introduce the project to all of you.  I had a great time.  You all seemed very interested and eager to get started, and you had some great questions. 

Today was also the day that the monarch caterpillars arrived.  I've posted some pictures of their arrival below.

The caterpillars are still really smalll.  They are only in the third instar.  Soon they will molt into the fourth instar and become an eating machine.

The shipment also came with diet which I put in the modified pill boxes for your rearing cages (Looks like guacamole, but sure did not smell like it!).

One of the classes  already made some lovely artwork which you can admire here.

See you next week.
