Summer Science - Build A Worm Farm!
For all you worm lovers out there, check out this fantastic DIY worm farm from Jillian over at A Mom With A Lesson Plan! It offers a great opportunity for your kinders to observe earth worms in a semi-natural environment and would work in great if you're doing a summer gardening unit!
The best part is, the items needed to make the worm farm can readily be found around the house. If you have a large class, consider dividing students into several groups and creating multiple worm farms so that each child can have a part in putting it together, as well as collecting a worm to contribute to the project.
We love that Jillian had her kiddos record the process, along with all of their observations throughout the project, in their science journals!
