The Science Fair:

On the 15th Rebekah participated in a Science Fair for the 1st graders with homeschooling group.

For her project she chose the “Life Cycle of Butterflies”…

As with anything we do in our home studies… this project became a family affair and we all learned, participated and enjoyed seeing “our” caterpillars grow change and eventually become Pink Lady butterflies!

Here is Rebekah’s set up….

A collection of weeks of journaling, reading, coloring, painting, crafting and of course raising butterflies.

She was so excited to show everyone all she had done.

Rebekah was a natural in front of all the parents and guests. She got up and completely ad-libbed a speech talking about her butterflies with confidence. We were so proud!

The first one flew out and away without any hesitation.

The next three flew away shortly after…

The last one however, enjoyed his home and was not in a hurry to make his getaway. Rebekah had to gently lift him out of the net… even then he stayed around.

He eventually flew away to meet his friends.

We had a great time learning all there is to know about butterflies… seriously, we found out some very interesting facts.

(Ask Anna what one butterfly eats….Winking smile)
