Students are fascinated (as I am) with some of the cocoons we have found in our school garden and at our homes. Level 1 and 2 students created these amazing cocoons using stockings, stretching a cocoon shape with bamboo sticks. Once they created the shape, they painted them in natural colours. When they were dry, they added natural materials from our school ground.
Students considered what a cocoon is, the range of types of cocoon structures, materials used and how they may have been constructed.
