Because of the childrens' interest in creatures that live in soil we decided to get some composting worms for our classroom.
While exploring our worms up close we found eggs.
We had many great conversations about worms.
Arthur told us " Worms eat dead things and poop".
Cooper told us " The dirt is the worms poop".
Megan said, " They make holes so they can go underground".
We all learned how important worms are for keeping soil healthy.
Healthy soil helps plants grow.
The children noticed how much these pieces of colored wire looked like worms and had a great time manipulating them.
When asked what new word they wanted to put in our work room window the answer was unanimous.
