Tammy and Kevin Cullina Grant: Silkworms and their importance to China

  • School Year: 2017-2018
  • Applicants: Susan Winslow, Lead Teacher
  • School: Bristow Middle School
  • Subjects: Social Studies

Students at Bristow Middle School will have hands-on experience of raising silkworms and observing them as the silkworms produce silk. This experience will provide them with a much deeper appreciation of the importance of this product to the history of China. After learning how silk was discovered in China, the students learn about the life cycle of silkworms and have the opportunity to take newly hatched silkworms home so they can watch the silkworms grow and spin cocoons of silk. This exciting project integrates science, math and social studies.
