Art City Elementary students read "The Very Hungry Caterpiller" by Eric Carle when they were studying the life cycles of butterflies. Students in second-grade have the opportunity to "gain an understanding of Life Science through the study of changes in organisms over time and the nature of living things." Students at Art City Elementary illustrated the life cycle of a butterfly. In the classes they ordered caterpillers to watch what they will do. They feed the caterpillers then the caterpillers turn into cacoons and eventually emerge as butterflies.
