… We are also including a hatching photo we took this August. The eggs were stuck to the brick wall outside our classroom and we watched daily to see what was going to happen. We’d loved to know what was coming out! Thank you so much for your help!

Dear Teacher of Fours and Fives,
We are most certain the eggs are those of an Imperial Moth. BugGuide shows good life cycle images and your first instar caterpillar, except for being a bit lighter, looks quite close to those images.
