We will be planting our seeds and plants and making labels for our spaces. We’ve planned a “Story Walk®” and plenty of time to learn about the seeds and plants we planted . We will explore who our “bug guest” might be in our Bug Condo. Hummingbird Feeders will be filled and put up and then we can watch Hummingbirds all summer.

After exploring to see what is ready to harvest and taste, and planting our beans and cucumbers, we will enjoy our “Story Walk®”. Monarch Butterflies will be today’s topic. We will look for butterfly eggs and caterpillars; all will go home with a Butterfly Rearing Kit and instructions to successfully raise their own Monarch Butterfly.
