Silk Factory

Ni Hao Room 25.
On Monday Mrs Singh visited one of the oldest silk factories. Here are some photos and video clips of the silk worms, and how the thread is processed. Can you find out the life cycle of a silk worm?

What bush is this?
Clue: Silk Worm Food


  1. Dear MRS SINGH
    You are a crazy lady.
    That's a lot of silk it looks like a over sized white tablet.
    Hope you had a wonderful time in the silk worm factory.
    The bush is a mulberry bush because it is the thing the silk worms mostly eat.

    Bye for now,

  2. Those silk worm eggs look like dinosaur eggs.

  4. Hi Mrs Singh
    Sorry that link didn't work out so well. So I have a very simple life cycle!
    It goes from a egg to a larvae to a
    cocoon to a adult moth then the adults moth lays an egg and the life cycle carries on.

  5. Hi again
    The bush in the photo is a
    mulberry bush. Also here is a life cycle
    of a silk worm.
    The mother lays the eggs,trance-forms into a larva
    then turn into a pupa and finally turns into an adult moth.
