Today we are looking for any changes. You might notice that the caterpillars have grown, but they are still quite small.
Can you see the silky strands of web in the pot? Here’s some information about this
Here’s some information about how long it will take and what the little black bits are in the pot.
“Your caterpillars will eat, spin silk and grow for approximately 7 to 10 days before changing into chrysalides. If your environment is hot and humid, your caterpillars will develop more quickly. During this incredible period of growth, they will shed their exoskeletons four times and grow more than 10 times their original size!”
Wow so they are going to grow much much bigger. I better do the second day of my caterpillar diary quickly then.
Now I look back I can see that they are already much bigger. I can also see their legs more clearly.
I wonder if they like the hot weather and that’s why they’ve grown so much.
Can you think of any stories that you might know about a caterpillar?
This is the one that I was thinking of. It’s Eric Carle reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar! If you know it you could join in.
