Time Lapse Video of Silk Worm

Full credit for this goes to Vu Lam one of our First Grade teachers who had an idea, played with the technology and then created something very cool.

A Time Laps Video of a Silk Worm spinning a cocoon. This is a day long process condensed into 38 seconds.

Sure I could go on about taking risks, getting an idea and then finding a way to make it happen. I could talk about all the skills involved in making something like this, all the skills that Vu just taught himself to make this great video for his kids. Yeah….I could….but this right here….this is when the technology speaks for itself, when put in the hands of a teacher who starts asking the questions “What if…….”.


  1. We just did the same thing with snails and caterpillars using iStopMotion. The kids loved watching this video!

  2. Very cool, indeed! Now I’ve got an idea for next year with the growing of our seeds in our terrariums for science.
