Most of the silk worms have now pupated into moths. They are busy laying eggs for the next stage in their life cycle. The eggs will need to refrigerated for at least 3 months before we can start the cycle again.

Do you know why?

 

Biology Unit 1

As part of Unit 1 Biology, students have been studying Functioning Systems of multicellular organisms. Students selected the digestive system as one mammalian system to examine.

 

On Wednesday the 8th of May the Unit 1/2 Biology class dissected rats as part of our studies on the digestive system. Once we looked into the rat we could see the digestive system, the cardiovascular system, excretory system, reproductive system and respiratory system. It also helped us to understand how the systems work together so we can function in day to day life. It also boosted our knowledge for our biological studies for the rest of the year and years to come.
