silk worm lifecycle

Lil P had to submit a science project on an insect and speak about it.. We decided to make a Lifecycle of a silkworm project. Here’s what we made.. We used felt sheets in green to make the leaves.. pipe cleaners to make the caterpillar.. an then garlic skin to make wings of the moth. Prrethi gave some raw silk and cocoons for the project. Here’s what Lil P and her friend R spoke.

I’m R and I will be talking about the life cycle of a
Silk Worm.

  1. First the female moth lays eggs. Then eggs hatches and caterpillar comes out.
  2. Caterpillar eats the mulberry leaves and grows bigger.
  3. Caterpillar spins a cocoon. Inside, the caterpillar changes into a PUPA
  4. Pupa comes out as a moth. The adult moth again lays eggs and the cycle goes on and on.
  5. The raw silk is extracted from the cocoon and is used to make silk clothes.
