Worms and Worm Bins
19 Sep, 2016. 0 Comments. . Posted By: lncigc

Program Description:

Worms and worm bins are a great way to study and compare anatomy of invertebrates and to learn the role of invertabrates in decomposing, the soil cycle, and the importance of composting. Learn about the many interesting features of a worm (such as the 5 hearts) and learn how you can have a new classroom pets to help with composting, in an indoor worm bin. They will learn about a worm’s anatomy and life cycle, the components of habitat that worms need, and of course composting- how it is done outdoors, how they will use vermicomposting with their worm bin in their classroom, and the benefits of composting. They will get to study and examine a worm in a petri dish, learn what can and cannot be composted through a compost relay game, and cheer on their favorite worm to be the fastest worm to win worm races.
