Before first recess some of us noticed this Wooly Bear on the cement at the side door of the school. It was outside when recess was over and it was all black and orange and black. It was a small caterpillar. It's so exciting because it's just the end of winter and very soon it will be spring! It's 7 more days til spring. When Mrs. Malkoske was taking this picture for the blog, Madeline asked to keep it because she's studying butterflies and caterpillars for PIP. But she didn't keep it (we don't know what it eats). It's exciting because it is a sign of spring.
