Butterfly farm fieldtrip
Today my class went on a field trip to a butterfly farm with another third grade class. Allie's class will be going on their first field trip to a volcano in a few weeks.
The farm is in La Guasima, outside of Escazu and they raise butterflies which they send all over the world. The farm has so many different types of plants and flowers in it, because different butterflies prefer different plants. We got to see how the farm takes care of the butterflies in all of the different stages. They are sent to customers when they are in the chrysalis stage.
The blue morpho butterflies were beautiful, and they were giant and very smooth when they were caterpillars. The kids had a lot of fun, although they were really wound up.
