How can they possible raise silk worms.  Sure they need to do a project but raising silk worms?  Patrick is very enthusiastic even thought Julia really doesn't want to do this. She can't tell Patrick that her reason is that she feels the project is too Korean.  She just hopes that they will find a reason not to do this.  Where will they find the worms?  How will they feed them?  But at each step of the way, Julia learns more about friendship, patience and tolerance than she could ever have imagined.
