New Horizons Students Learn About Life Cycles

New Horizons Elementary School kindergartners are learning about the life cycles of plants and animals. Students learned about plants by planting terrariums and a butterfly garden. They discovered the process of metamorphosis by collecting caterpillars from their garden, placing them in a butterfly house, and watching them morph into cocoons then full-grown butterflies. Students enjoyed completing the cycle by releasing the butterflies back into the butterfly garden. Shown here are kindergarten students with their teachers Erin Santiago and Bette Baez releasing the butterflies into the butterfly garden.
