Worms Are So Cool!!!
My students need books to help us learn more about worms.
We are doing a lot of project based learning activities at our school. The kindergarten class decided we wanted to learn all we could about worms and start a school wide composting program. We also want a worm bin in our classroom. We need to learn all we can about worms to do these projects.
We are a small rural school in Kansas.
Many of the students live on farms. Because of the farm background of the students, we are doing many agriculture based, project based learning activities at school this year. We are wanting the students to be more actively involved in their education.
We are doing many agriculture based, project based learning activities at school this year. The students are learning about where their food comes from and what it takes to raise the animals. We have 2 calves, 2 sheep and 25 chickens on the school grounds. We are also teaching the students about using their resources wisely. We have a greenhouse at the school and are composting to make soil to add to the potting soil we have purchased. We are also collecting rainwater to water the plants in the greenhouse. We are wanting the students to be more actively involved in their education.
These books would help the students research worms and then be able to apply what they learn about the worms by having a worm bin in the classroom.
They will also learn more about composting and that information will help them implement a school wide composting program.
