On the playground Steven and Sally were bored at home so they decided to go to the playground. They took a taxi to go there. When they finally reached the playground, they found their friends sitting in the grass and talking. Steven and Sally sat down and looked around. Steven found in the grass a small branch with a few green leaves. Suddenly he spotted a tiny yellow round object on a leaf. What is this? An egg? Is it a butterfly egg? They were so excited that they found a butterfly egg! They put the egg in a tissue paper and went back home. Where should they put the egg?butterfly egg On the chair On a nice green leaf
On the chair It seems that it is not very well. It rocks. Something is wrong here. We have to call our parents to fix the egg to the chair surface. Phew! Now everything seems fine. Here we have a nice small egg. Oh no! It’s breaking. Will it hatch? Man! A nice small caterpillar is coming out! Oh, we forgot. It needs food! But there is no food on the chair. Steven and Sally ask you: will this caterpillar live without any food? No, certainly not! So go back because you selected the wrong option. Click here to go back.here
On the leaf It lies very comfortable on the leaf. CRUNCH, CRUNCH! It seems that it is coming out. Thank you for helping us to make a good choice where to put it! Steven and Sally say thanks to you. Now it’s hatching…. Look! A nice little caterpillar is coming out! It is all yellow and black and it looks like a squiggly stick! We should give it some food. What kind of food should we feed our caterpillar?caterpillar More green leavesSeeds
CRUNCH! CRUNCH! No, it’s too hard…our caterpillar is hungry but there is no suitable food to eat. It is restless in the chair. Now it rocks fiercely. BUUUUUU! Then it calms down and doesn’t move anymore. Don’t panic, we can get another egg. Don’t think that it’s your fault. We’ll invite you next time when we have another egg! Now click here to go back.here
More Green Leaves Yum! Yum! It grows and grows. We have to give it more food. RUNCH! CRUNCH! Look! It is eating the food. It is much bigger now but still so hungry. We have to give it even more food. MMMMMMMMM….Day by day it is eating and growing. It is getting bigger and bigger. What an amazing creature. After having pounds of green leaves in two weeks, it is a huge caterpillar! It is looking for a safe place to turn into a Pupa! Choose the one of two options. Thank you for helping Steven and Sally!Pupa A plant with branches A nice soft cushion
Oops, we made a mistake. The caterpillar can’t turn into a pupa in a soft place, neither can it hang on a cushion! How could it live? Ask yourself: can a pupa live in a soft place? No! Click here to go back because you selected the wrong option.here
A plant with branches Yeah! It is a pupa now! Try to think what the pupa might want to happen now. Maybe it wants to turn into a butterfly faster? Or to get married? What do you think? Have a deep think ………… Well, we don’t know. Anyway, don’t give food to the pupa. A pupa doesn't eat food. Talking about food, let’s eat some sandwiches and watch…………. One whole week passed! Look! It starts to turn into a butterfly or a moth! Watch………. POP! It is a butterfly! Isn’t it surprising! Well………. It’s time to let him go, because he belongs to the nature! Thank you for helping Steven and Sally! Bye!butterfly
Lifecycle of a butterfly Information page 1 Caterpillar - The caterpillar is the 2 nd stage in the butterfly life cycle. In this stage the caterpillar eats a lot of food. It will not eat food when it is in a Pupa stage, so it eats a lot now. This stage lasts from two to four weeks. It also grows very fast. Click here to go back to the storyhere Butterfly eggs - Female butterfly lays a great number of eggs. She puts the eggs on a leaf and tries to hide them. When the caterpillar is hatched, it can eat the leaves. Butterfly eggs are round or oval. Their color could be white, green, or yellow. Click here to go back to the story.here
Lifecycle of a butterfly Information page 2 Pupa - In the pupa stage a caterpillar is inside a chrysalis. It does not eat anymore. The pupa stage can take a few days or even several months. Some butterflies spend the whole winter in pupa and come out in spring. Some caterpillars like silkworm spin a silk cocoon to protect the pupa. Click here to go back to the story here Butterfly - When the adult comes out from the chrysalis, its wings are wrinkled and wet. The butterfly pumps the fluid from his abdomen into his wings to inflate them. When his wings dry up he is ready to fly. Click here to go back to the storyhere Source: Col, Jeananda.
