Miss Speer's Hallway Displays
Students were able to observe actual silkworms complete their four stage lifecycle from start to finish as we completed our unit on metamorphosis. Shown here are student-made examples of each of the four stages. The silkworms were placed on the leaves of our "mulberry" tree, because as we learned, mulberry leaves are the only thing silkworms can consume.
Students completed timelines as we moved through our unit on Texas's Independence and wrote letters to either a fictitious character from the book "I Remember the Alamo", or to an actual soldier in Iraq.
