As part of their "scientific investigations" focus at the beginning of the school year, the Preschool 3- and 4-year old scientists have been studying the life cycle of butterflies.
Beginning with the arrival of tiny black caterpillars on the second week of school, these budding investigators have observed the growth of the monarch caterpillars, the almost magical development of their chrysalises and the joyful release of the butterflies near the Pre-School playground.
Keep a look out for these beautiful orange and black insects as they soar through Charlottesville!
