Scholars in Mr. Ben Clutter’s high school biology class are preparing to raise painted lady butterflies! This will be a semester long project that will teach scholars team work, empathy, and an appreciation of biological life cycles. Early in September the class prepared the butterfly larvae (caterpillars) for development in individual growth cups. Scholars will monitor the progress and discuss each stage of development as the larvae transform into butterflies. We are looking forward to getting updates on this progress throughout the semester and can’t wait to see the butterflies emerge!
