Our group did an experiment on Monarch Caterpillars. Our experiment is based on Size and Amount of Space. We believed that the more space a caterpillar got, the faster they would grow.
We wanted to see how fast a caterpillar could grow depending upon the size of the container they were kept in.
Results- Jessa's caterpillars were the biggest caterpillars, and they grew the fastest. Because Jessa's were in the biggest container. Dasha's, Ashley's, and Amanda's all died before reaching their chrysalises. We think it's because they were in the smallest containers.
Our group agrees that we don't think that Ashley should've left her caterpillars at Dasha's house, because the environment they stayed in could've been the same and caused the caterpillars to die around the same dates. And the fact that Ashley didn't raise them herself.
The two things we learned were: That you can't touch or play with the Monarch caterpillars, because it could kill them. And we also learned the difference between a Male, and a Female Monarch Butterfly, but you can't tell the difference between a Male and Female Monarch Caterpillar.
