Lifecycle of Ladybugs-Larvae Update

Last week you read about our new classroom friends. Our larvae continue to grow! We have been surprised every day this week with how much bigger they look! Many adults around here (including Miss Stephanie) have been surprised that lady bugs look like this when they are babies. We've all probably seen this little bugs outside and had no idea they were going to turn into lady bugs one day!

You can watch a video about the lifecycle of a ladybug here by clicking this link.

When you watch the video, you will see what happens to lady bug spots as a lady bug gets older.

-Watch the video with your son/daughter and listen for what happens to lady bug spots as they get older.
-Draw a picture of what lady bugs look like before they get old and then what starts happening to them when they get older.
-Bring it in on Monday!

Check out what our larvae look like this week!
