Lifecycle of ladybug 🐞 | Foster

What a gorgeous day! Students at Foster Elementary learned about the lifecycle of a ladybug. This insect grows up much like a butterfly but the stages look different. Instead of a caterpillar, a ladybug is born as a larva, sheds its skin several times as it grows, hardens into a pupa and crawls out as a ladybug. See stages below:

We had a fun time looking at different pictures from books from the library and then went on a scavenger hunt to see if we could find any in our garden!

We even ate a snack of kale and carrots!
