Our class tries to stay as hands on as possible. We are motivated by having engaging activities. We have talked about the Scientific Method and Scientific Questioning. To wrap up the year, we are going to learn about gardening and composting. We want to learn all about worms and how they make dirt. We also want to see what happens with eggs on a farm and what they take to hatch. Since this is no small feat, I am looking into purchasing Incubators for the eggs. This is where the Incubator Manual ECO II egg comes in. This Incubator is perfect with the clear dome on top so the students can watch as the eggs hatch. Not only is this directly related to our science standards, but it is also a miraculous occasion that our students can witness something they have never seen before! I also chose some specific read alouds that will help elaborate on the process from egg to chicken. I believe that Egg Nature's Perfect Package and Hatching Eggs will help students understand what is happening as the egg grows and how eggs are formed. The worm compost kit will be used as our own personal compost bin in first grade. We will learn the responsibility of taking care of worms and how they can benefit us as well by making dirt that we can use to plant flowers and vegetables. This will give my students responsibility and a deeper understanding on how things grow. I also chose some Nonfiction books that help my students understand how everyday items that are thrown away can be beneficial to our Earth. The stories, Composting Nature's Recyclers, What's Sprouting in my Trash?, Compost Stew, and Let's Compost will teach my students how to take care of the Earth.
