Small Science - discovering living things

Critters discovered by the 5th grade Small Science students in their terrace garden.

A lovely opportunity to give them "crumbs" of information from Geetha Iyer's book "Weavers" which has fascinating information about insects that work with silk.

Later, a student found another book with pictures of tunnelling larvae

He showed me how tree leaves develop galls to protect themselves against caterpillars.
