We had our 4th graders work with the worms. They collected food and spread it in the bins. We studied the parts of the worm and how they work, helping the soil while decomposing the compost, another area of our learning.
The students are now familiar with the parts of a worm and its importance to our soil.
Students in fourth grade brought in food items to sustain the worm growth. They used the books to learn about the worms and how they help our soil.

Students in the fourth grade now have a unit on worms each year.
The worm unit is now an integral part of our science teacher’s greenhouse program.
Areas needing additional study
We will be working on finding ways to sustain the purchasing of any additional worms needed.
