This event was inspired by my children playing with worms/learning about worms on a rainy day in April (two photos attached, one of journal entry, one of worm).
The event was very popular with children and families. Here are some photos plus a link to an educational worm video that we pulled together after the event. https://youtu.be/3_IX4wcECQg
FYI, here was the agenda for the day:
– 15-30 minute fun/informal presentation
do worms have eyes – worm anatomy; what kind of classification does “worm” fall under, anyway (we’ll have plenty of night crawlers for you to use) …
THIS LEADS INTO A CRAFT … DRAW YOUR OWN WORM
worm babies – how do worms mate … is this the same or different than how humans and mammals mate? How do animals mate, anyway? Starfish just break off into pieces and regrow afterall … this is such a crazy cool question …
worm habitats, what do they need to live
THIS LEADS INTO A CRAFT … ONE PER FAMILY, MAKE A WORM OBSERVATION JAR
– 15-30 minute story
how long would it take one worm to compost one apple/one watermelon rind/one piece of tissue paper? I will be Happy to save these gross things for you if you would like, or would you like to bring them in ziplock bags, maybe we can tape them to a sheet of paper with the answer on the back???
how do worms help farmers grow their food
