this year in kindergarten the class had the great opportunity of learning about bugs. the awesome teachers they had mrs. flandermeyer & mrs. patterson ordered ladybug land. they watched the life cycle of a ladybug. emma lael talked about this every day. i ordered a ladybug land for her to have at home.
tiny yellow eggs are laid on leaves
(eggs hatch in 3-7 days)
the eggs were delivered via us mail on a strip of white paper in a test tube.
open up the test tube and place eggs in ladybug land.
the ladybugs below are in pupa stage
they went into this stage at different times.
(life span: a few months)
here we have our first ladybug. they are born yellow...within 30 minutes their spots will begin to appear and darken as the days pass.
i'm not sure who is more excited about this emma lael or me. ;)
