“TEACHING a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar.” — Bradley Miller.

Children are naturally curious about (and interested in) insects, so when one of our dads brought us some silkworms, we took the opportunity to experience and watch the transformation of the silkworm into a moth.

Through this experience, each pupil has learned about the life-cycle of the moth.

Day by day we watched the transformation — from the small caterpillar stage, all the way through the metamorphosis to a moth.

We observed how the caterpillar eats and moves, and how it changes features as it grows.

This is the first step towards igniting a passion for scientific discovery in our scholars.
