Earth Day Is Every Day

We celebrate the earth every day as part of our TK curriculum…. soil, worms, caterpillars, butterflies, and plants.  Please take a closer look…

Worm Composting – We compost our food scraps and feed our worms.  The worms make rich, dark compost for our fall and spring planting.

Gardening – We planted lettuce, beets, and carrots in the fall.  We just planted our flower seeds last week….they are now starting to grow!

Flowers – Taking a Closer Look

Pipevine Swallowtail Butterfly – The Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly lays its eggs on the tender leaves and stems of the California Pipevine plant.   The eggs hatch into caterpillars and feed on the pipevine  leaves, transforming into a chrysalis through the winter and finally emerging as a Swallowtail Butterfly in the spring.

We Made a Swallowtail Butterfly Book

Spring Has Sprung!

We celebrated spring with a bang!…planting sunflowers with our worm compost, watching the caterpillars transform to chrysalises and then flying away as butterflies, and most of all having loads of fun!

Worm Composting – We continue to shred newspaper and feed our worms.

From Eggs to Butterflies – Watching Them Grow

We watched as the chrysalises hung on for dear life and then magically emerged as beautiful “painted lady” butterflies.



After watching the butterflies for several days, we set them free….
