My students need wiggly, wriggly worms and resources for their science podcasts!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I work in a small, fully inclusive charter school, where almost 90% of the students receive free and reduced-price lunch. I work with students who are labeled in many ways: ELL, LD, ID, BIP, IEP, SLP, apraxic, autistic, ADD, ADHD, ODD, and the list goes on. I'm working to help students remove their labels and find their feet, as well as their voices.
My students come from a variety of backgrounds, but one thing they have in common is their thirst for creative learning opportunities.
My students have been exploring, investigating, experiencing, and creating podcasts based on a variety of insects from butterflies, praying mantis, ladybugs, and roly-polies. The next step might not be an insect so speak- but definitely falls into the "bug" category.
We need worms, worm farms, and worm measuring resources to create the next "bug" podcast.
Measuring pretend worms and reading about them is one thing but raising, feeding, tracking, and measuring real worms is another experience altogether. I want to bring science alive as much as possible-so these materials are the next step in a sensory science class. Working and observing real worms is just in time for Earth Day.
