During the Learning from Home period, Class 2-3 made springtime projects: we were super-sleuth journalists reporting on the early signs of spring; and later, we returned to the scene of the crime to report developments in leaf, seed and fruit formation; and we also investigated insects in our backyards and in the bush.
In the classroom, we gathered mulberry leaves to feed our voracious silk worms. Below is a video of a silk worm delicately and wondrously weaving its cocoon. We have followed them from egg to hatchling to soft, fat caterpillar, to cocoon, to moth, to egg.
