We are learning about life cycles. We know that the human life cycle starts at baby, then toddler, child, then teenager, then adult, and senior citizen.
We were curious if ladybugs have the same life cycle.
We looked at a real ladybug with our microscope. Then we read a book about ladybugs.
We thought this ladybug was dead but we noticed its legs moving just a little bit. We have figured out that it is hibernating.
The ladybug life cycle starts at eggs, then larva, then pupa, and finally, LADYBUGS!
