East Quogue Elementary School third graders, including Sophia Cagno and Cristel Martinez, had the opportunity to learn about butterflies by raising their very own caterpillars.  Students observed their caterpillars daily while learning about all of the different stages they will go through during the unit. Once caterpillars formed their chrysalis, they were transferred to a larger box while we eagerly waited for them to go through their metamorphosis.  Then they celebrated with a butterfly release day.
