From little things...big things grow...
We started out with a group of small eggs and our silkworm have now almost completed their life cycle! We watched as the silk worms continually munched their way through a heavy stream of mulberry leaves and with each devoured leaf, the silkworms would grow. The children marvelled at their growth and we learnt about the best way to care for our new pet. Many children donated homes for the silkworms as we found they would need space to begin the spinning of their cocoons. We now have several cocoons made by the silk worms and we await the emerging silkmoths to come!
Following this we will see the silkmoths mate and lay more eggs. Stay tuned!
