We have named the spider Jeff.
We are waiting to see if it lays eggs as this might help us determine its gender.
It runs away from loud noises, so we need to be quiet.
It has had to rebuild its web several times this week due to weather and rain damage. Must be very patient.
From looking at pictures of webs we believe that Jeff's web looks like an Orb web. This might be an indication as to what type of spider it is.
During quiet reading time several students volunteered to go through the library and find books about spiders to help support our investigation.
If you have any information, questions or resources that might help us with our investigation please feel free to send it to school.
Cant wait to see what happens next...
