Giant Silkmoth Emerges/Expands Wings Realtime/Timelapse
Here we see the original raw footage in both realtime and timelapse. A male Euryalus SIlkmoth (Hyalophora euryalus) struggles out of his cocoon, and then expands his wings. This moth species typically has a wingspan of about 4-5 inches across from wingtip-to-wingtip, and is sometimes mistaken for a bat or small bird when encountered flying at night. What a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (2:11)

Put a Spark In It! - Electricity
