Monarch caterpillars

Our good friend "T" presented us with some monarch butterflies and chrysalises.They grow/live on this plant which is apparently a noxious weed here.

In New Zealand I remember growing swan plant and monarchs loving this much to gardener's annoyance!

We've never watched them hatch out before and are very excited to have our first science "experiment" presented to us...and we haven't even officially started school yet! The last photo is our summer nature table.
