The best lessons happen without effort, out of the classroom and, many times, on a walk.
A few weeks ago the ground was littered with caterpillars.
Now the leaves are full of holes, and the fat caterpillars have wrapped into cocoons.I can’t wait until the air becomes a flutter of bright wings. While images of the butterfly life cycle and books like Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar nicely support this springtime metamorphasis, nothing like picking a munched leaf or stooping to see a furry caterpillar’s movement, absorbed through the senses, can better tell a child of spring.
yes, nothing like the magic of observing nature! Thanks for your reblog 🙂
I couldn’t resist. Love the shot and the script!
