The Butterfly life cycle

Butterflies go through four stages in it's life.Eggs are the first stage.Then it turns into a Caterpillar,they have to shed the skin four or five times.The Caterpillar is turned into a soup inside the Pupa.All Butterflies and Moths have a Pupa or Chrysalis.The last stage is an adult Butterfly.It only lives for a week or two.

Field Trip by Jessica

We took a trip to the Butterfly park. When we were inside, I saw 2 butterflies mating. It was yellow and black. Aishwarya spotted a butterfly laying eggs. When my group walked on, we saw some signs that tell more information about the butterfly. I saw a Duffer Dam Faun. It is a kind of butterfly. Later, we came to see some green butterflies spreading their wings wide. They looked marvelous. I spotted a brown butterfly camouflaging. Iona and Aishwarya couldn't see it. We came up the stairs and saw a butterfly walking on the ground. We saw its wing rip. I could tell, that butterfly is going to be danger because of its predators. Matthew saw a Preying Mantis up on a net. My group saw many chrysalis on display. There were shiny ones, and humongous ones, and I saw the smallest, tiniest chrysalis. Later on, we came to a fountain. There were fish and we saw a froglet! I also saw a tadpole. My group came to see the turtles with red and yellow stripes and giant shells and it had red eyes. When the whole grade two came inside the butterfly museum, we saw Giant Millipede, Jewel insects, Blue Morpho (it is my favorite,) Leaf frog, Green Mantis, Long legged Katyid, Man faced bug.

And in the Bird Park, We saw Ostrich, black headed Bulbul, Toucan, ducks, roosters, flamingos. When we came to the flamingo park, We came to a waterfall! We went on a bridge and suddenly, we were in the waterfall! My group saw a rainbow in the end of the waterfall. It was sure a hot day! But still, we enjoyed. Mathew, Iona, Aishwarya, Me, and Mrs. Hambly took a long walk to all the way to our bus. Aishwarya was really, really tired. She and me were tired of reminding of the droppings (which are the birds' poo.) and seeing all those droppings. In Dinosaur World, I saw a wedding. Well however, it was very, very tiring but IT WAS THE BEST FIELD TRIP EVER!!!

The field trip. By Mitchell

We went to the butterfly and bird park. we saw a chrysalis and a lot of butterfly. We also saw a dead butterfly. We saw big chrysalis. After that we went to the bird park. We saw a waterfall. we went under the waterfall We saw some parrots. We feed them with milk. Next, we saw some flamango. That was the part when we went under the waterfall. After the flamango. We went to the play ground. It was so fun. I also saw my friend too. After that, we took a picture. Then we played for ten minutes. Last, we went back to ISKL. I hope you like it.

Silly story

Once upon a time, there was a dog named "Shoey". Why? Because he eats a lot of shoes. One day, he met a dog whose name is "Garby". Why? Because she eats garbage. Then they went to the park where they could go camping. Instead of marshmallows, Shoey roasted shoes and Garby roasted garbage which she got from a nearby trash can. When they finish roasting, they started putting up their tent, but none of them knows how to build a tent. Garby said, "Let's use the garbage can." "What?!", shouted Shoey. "Who in the world makes a tent out of a trash can?", asked Shoey. "We do!", Garby replied. Since they could not agree on how they will build their tent, they decided to just check in a hotel.

Life Cycles

What I learned about the life cycles of frogs, butterflies and fish is that they all start from eggs before turning into grownups. Then, it will start all over again and again and again. Humans also start as an egg inside the mom's stomach, called an embryo, before turning into a baby then into adult. But for the frogs and the fish's eggs, you can find them underwater, like a pond. They are covered with jelly. Inside the jelly, is the egg. The frog's life cycle begins as an egg, then into tadpole. Then it will grow legs in the back and then in the front. The tails get shorter and shorter everyday before turning into an adult frog. The eggs of the butterfly are found under leaves. Then in turns into a larva also called caterpilars. The caterpilar spins into a cocoon or pupa. After 14 days, the pupa turns into a beautiful butterfly.

Life Cycles

I leant about Life Cycles in my class. It was about the Salmon fish. My partner, Maureen helped me, and I helped her. And there's something about the moth and butterfly. A moths' wings stick inside but a butterflies' wings stick outside. A life cycle begins again and again. Like a butterfly lays an egg, egg hatches into a baby caterpillar, caterpillar turns to chrysalis, chrysalis has a caterpillar inside, caterpillar turns to butterfly. So that happen again and again. The Swallow-tail butterfly and Lime or Lemon Butterfly look the same. But if you see the pattern carefully, they are a bit different.
I enjoy learning 'bout Life Cycles.

the broken bridge by maureen

once in Alaska,

there was a little girl named Loren Alston. And that is me.Every day it's puffy and everything is dull but today it's different there was a thunderstorm
all the Eskimo tribes run into their igloos but i wanted to stay i knew something was
interesting was out there so i slightly push my mother away and sit on the ice

then comes out a rainbow Gran-Gran says that rainbows are magic and you wish on them too!

so i quickly close my eyes and wish that Alaska had spring scene mostly then i slightly open my eyes

"Loren" sorry gotta go mama's calling"coming Mama" then in the morning i was the first tribe to wake up

"its a spring scene !" i shout out every one wakes up "and even our igloos aren't melting" said Kansas flinty my best friend

and that's when building began they builded a bridge to a lighthouse I'm so excited cause

tomorrow is July3 and that's my birthday. I was going to open my present on the Bridge I opened up
the wrapping and splash ! The present fell into the River and all I had left was its wrapping I had started to cry
I ran into my room got my scuba-diving set from my Uncle got my school bag filled it up with food and things for adventure
because I would do whatever it takes to find my present even it was a simple barbie doll
so I set on for the adventure so I go to the the last piece of an ice ledge and plunge into the river
"Huff at least no saw me!" I search along and check my map inside and it said i was in the Heart of the ocean
as I searched I found an enormous cave i saw some bone but I went on I saw a treasure box so I greedily grab it before
anything else happened it was getting late so i find another cave to rest in the next day I eat some waffles but doesn't taste
as tasty as on land I had searched for 99 days and haven't found anything so i decided to go back home
but I didn't know how beacause the piecese fish ate my map so I Swam without knowing and in 3 days I found my home
'' Loren I was so worried about you " for a secondI turned arond and showed her the tresaure box and it contained...
my present and billons of dollars

Mothers' Day by Jessica

It was 10th May 2009. It was a wonderful day, do you know why? It was Mothers' Day! I went to the church and prayed for my Mother. The priest of my church told every child to bring in their presents and give it to their Mother. The priest told that in 3rd May 2009. But the next Sunday, I forgot to give it at church. But never mind, I gave the gifts to my Mother in the morning. My Mother used one of my coupon. I had a great time with my Mother.
