We are very pleased to announce that we now have new… “classmates”! Several lucky little crawlers/burrowers… WORMS…have come to live with us and their “room” (worm bin) has been set up in our classroom.
The Wormologists of Room 103 are very excited to be watching, studying and learning about worms.
“Think the earthworm is only good for fish bait? Well, think again. The earthworm is one of nature's top "soil scientists." The earthworm is responsible for a lot of the things that help make our soil good enough to grow healthy plants and provide us food.”
Our classroom worms (a.k.a. “the red wigglers“) will also be helping us learn about Vermicomposting (composting with worms).
