Monarch Metamorphosis in Seventh Grade Science

Thanks to some donated Monarch caterpillars, seventh graders were able to watch the metamorphosis of the Monarch from caterpillar (larvae) to cocoon (pupa) to butterfly (adult). Metamorphosis, changing from an immature to adult form in distinct stages, is one of the topics we will be learning about in seventh grade Science. After a couple of days in the classroom, the adult butterflies were released to the wild.
