Life Cycle of a Silk Worm & Silk Production
Life cycle of a silkworm and a book review | Kids Play Box

I tell Nicia the story, “I took my class on an outing with a forest ranger to demonstrate the life cycle of a silk worm. As the lecture got lengthier, the students became restless, Bill felt sorry for them so started handing out the snacks we’d brought along. As the students noticed, one by one they went to Bill for a treat, causing the ranger to end the lesson.”
