The transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly is one of extraordinary wonder. Imagine the delight when our kindergarten students recently had the opportunity to watch the full metamorphic cycle unfold within their own classroom! In their study of butterflies, the students collected milkweed leaves with caterpillars attached. Unbeknownst to them, tiny eggs were also hiding on the leaves. Additional caterpillars hatched from those eggs, formed chrysalises, and eventually produced monarch butterflies. The students witnessed a total of five butterflies emerging from their chrysalises. The graceful insects flew around the room, alighting on the heads and shoulders of students. Later, the students released the butterflies so they could complete their southern migration.
It is no surprise that the life cycle of a butterfly is often used as a metaphor for human development. It is such a privilege to witness the transformation of students from children into young men and women who are prepared to move on to the next phase of their lives.
