A caterpillar miracle

At morning tea on the 20th February one of our caterpillars shed its skin and went into a chrysalis. It was amazing. It was such a wonderful thing to watch. It is on top of the bamboo stick. It was whirling, swirling and twirling round in a circle. Everyone was watching. It is really cool how they shed their skin. That is our caterpillar miracle.


  1. I like your story Laura.Sam

  2. Isn't it amazing to be able to watch the caterpillar turn into a chrysalis! We tried to watch a caterpillar in our class become one today but I think it was shy and didn't want to change in front of us. As soon as all my students had left for the day it changed into a chrysalis! Luckily another teacher at our school had filmed a caterpillar turning into a chrysalis last year so we got to watch the video of it.
    I was surprised that the caterpillar moves so much while it sheds its skin. I loved the words you used to describe how the caterpillar moved.
