Birth of the Helicoverpa Armigera

Year 2 discovered the joy of taking ownership of their Helicoverpa Armigera's (caterpillars for short) today. There were many varied and interesting names given examples were "Bob, Sally, Fido and Mac". Each student was given 4 caterpillars, a block of diet and plastic cups. These were placed in egg cartons and are now being stored in a dark room. Weekly students will take them out, record growth and take pictures of their "pets". Student are also keeping a learning journal as part of this project to record reflections and predictions.
