The children have been fascinated with watching the metamorphosis of the silkworms in our classroom. Thanks to the Bollen family for bringing in eggs and larvae for us. We have been able to experience first hand the lifecycle of the silkworm from eggs to moths.
This week the children have been closely observing the pupae, cocoons and moths. We have done research on the life cycle of the silkworm and the children have engaged in observational drawing to illustrate and anecdote the lifecycle.
