Last week, we learned about butterflies and caterpillars. I got to see a caterpillar. It was in a jar. It was sticking to the top of the jar because it was making a cocoon. It will be a butterfly.
We went into the backyard and saw the plants. Here is how long they were.
After one week (May 22)
Radish: 3 1/2 cm
Lettuce: 0 cm
Spinach: 1/2 cm
The plants came from seeds that I planted two weeks ago (on May 15). Mommy made the trench and I poured the seeds in.
Today, we learned about what a scientist does. We learned how to draw like a scientist. Then we learned how an artist draws and writes about science.
Then I wrote a poem about a green bean plant. Here is my title: Plants. Here is my poem.

Next we observed our plants outside. Here is how big they were this week:
After two weeks (May 29)
Radish: 7 1/2 cm
Lettuce: 1/2 cm
Spinach: 6 cm
Then I drew a picture of radish and spinach leaves.
We saw butterflies in a cocoon. Two started wiggling. We quickly put them in the butterfly house. They are going to come out! Here is my picture of the cocoon.
Next we read about crickets. I observed crickets. They have six legs. The back legs are fat. They need them fat to jump. I made a drawing. Here is my drawing.
For homework, I have to go to my backyard and look for insects.
