To start off our journey into Sharing the Planet, KA came to school to observe what they thought was in these containers. Throughout the week they guessed what it could be- a caterpillar or a worm. We charted our ideas and watched videos. Then on Friday we discovered that these have similarities of both a caterpillar and a worm……They are silk worms.
KA has enjoyed watching and feeding them. They’ve grown from eggs and have multiplied. We’ve watched them spin their webs and we have played with them and cared for them. KA has even taken them home over the weekends. We are on our last round of the cycle as some families have taken the last of our eggs home.
