Charlotte's Web: Charlotte's Children
  • Science → Ecology → Biodiversity
  • Science → Biology → Genetic Diversity

Charlotte's babies are born in the barn, and they float away, to Wilbur's dismay, in a process called ballooning. The spiderlings tell Wilbur that they are using the breeze to fly away. This ballooning process is important because it reduces competition between siblings and allows for genetic diversity.
