In this activity, students use information from a video of Dr Robert Hoare rearing moths from eggs and caterpillars in the laboratory to write a ‘how to’ guide for rearing moths.

By the end of this activity, students should be able to:

  • describe the life cycle of a moth
  • explain in detail how they could rear a moth in the classroom or at home
  • present and/or publish their own guide on how to raise a moth.

  • introduction/background notes
