This spring we welcomed a bunch of flatworm babies that hatched from crazy looking winter eggs. Check out the video below!
In late winter of 2013 we ordered Dugesia flatworms as a way to expose my young children to science.
This Planaria Main Page is the gateway to what we've learned so far and all the the materials that we have developed through our home life science explorations: information on keeping flatworms, Dugesia, and flatworm regeneration
Learn how Dugesia reproduce with summer and winter egg capsules, regrow missing body parts, and even make new flatworms by pinching off part of their own body! Features "Cupcake", the flatworm start of our regeneration experiments.
