In this podcast the students go to the school's butterfly garden for storytime. The teacher reads a story about Painted lady butterflies, which is the type of butterflies that we have raised for our garden. The students will listen while they are surrounded by butterflies. The students will later write about their experiences visiting the butterfly garden. They will observe the life cycle of the butterfly and identify three stages that are present in the garden; the egg, chrysalis and the adult butterfly.
