Clorophyll, Leaves, and Silk Moth Caterpillars

Katie Kingery-Page shared all kinds of information about leaves and chlorophyll and then she led us outside on a search for leaves that were chock full of the stuff. The search took some of us into the trees! After collecting some excellent specimens, everyone created exquisite pieces of art by using a spoon to rub the leaves between thick watercolor paper.

We also got a sneak peek of the Silk Moth caterpillars (and learned what their poop looks like).  And Kathleen taught us a new song!
