On Tuesday, class 3 went with Ms. Mönnich, Ms. Schmidt and Ms. Quynh Anh to the butterfly house HCMC in the Saigon Zoo. For several weeks now, class 3 has learned the physical attributes, the lifecycle, the development, the different species, and the enemies of the butterfly in Early Science. As result, they wanted to see butterflies in real life. At the butterfly house, the guide told us a lot about butterflies. Then we were allowed to observe them and experience them up close. We saw butterfly eggs, pupas and butterflies mating. We were also able to marvel at many new butterfly species. All children found it very interesting and realized that they already knew a lot about butterflies! Finally we got to see the other animals in the zoo. It was a very interesting and fun trip. In the end we took a little train trip through the zoo and ate ice cream to cool off.
