The Silk Factory

Today we went to the silk factory, there were so many parts to it, from silk worms, mulberry trees and diarrhoea to stretching, twisting and reeling all the silk. It was really interesting and we got to feel real and fake silk. We learned about the life cycle of a silk worm and was also interesting, because we learnt that when a male and a female make babies , the male dies immediately. Which is really weird.
We also saw the how the silk got pulled from the cocoon and turned around in a big wheel, to get the silk off they had to put them in hot water and there was a machine that pulled the cocoon and and untangled it into a big wheel of silk one cocoon can make a whole layer of silk.

After all the steps you have to stretch the silk to make like a doona, 10 cocoons stretched to a double bed doona. I helped to stretch a layer.

Day 6

Today we woke up early and went to our sister school. First all the fifty eight classes came out and we had to listen to the national anthem. Then we went into a gym and played table tennis and we did some games like we had to run around in a circle then the teacher would call out a number and we had to get in a group of that number. Then we did some Kung fu and practised that. Then the bell rang and we went and did some paper cutting. It was cool and hard then we had our lunch and went back home to the hotel.
