Learning about the life cycle of silkworms
A Year 2 student at Pretty Beach Public School has written about silkworms in the school newsletter.
"For the past few weeks, 2H has been looking at the life cycle of silkworms," Zoe wrote.
"The silkworms are now growing their cocoons which are yellow.
"We have also been looking at how the silkworms turn into moths; 2H has been really inspired and has taken turns at having the silkworms on their desk.
"The silkworms are amazing creatures and eat the leaves of a mulberry tree.
"Mrs (Jodie) Holloman brings in bags of leaves for the silkworms and they are really fast eaters and have dots and stripes on them.
"We also have some that make silk on your hand when you hold it.
"We hope you get inspired by our silkworms too."
