SOUTHERN, W.Va. — Kindergartners at Little Birch Elementary School in Braxton County got up close and personal with butterflies recently.

The class raised more than 30 painted lady butterflies as a school project. Each student started with his or her own caterpillar in a cup. They watched them form a chrysalis and then hatch into a butterfly, which they then released on the school playground.
