Worms in the Classroom
Ask me about a school presentation!
I can come to your classroom to share vermicomposting with your students, and set up a complete indoor composting system.
The kids will learn about the nutrient cycle, reducing household food waste, and the benefits of the all-natural fertilizer that is the by-product of keeping worms. School presentations are a great way to introduce composting in the classroom. My presentations are interactive and engaging, and usually last about an hour.
The fall is a great time to start a classroom bin. Your bin will be fully functioning, and producing castings by the spring in time for a successful harvest and windowsill planting. The castings can make for an excellent science unit, especially if microscopes are available. Looking at cocoons close up is fascinating!
The presentation package includes a fully functioning bin, a pound of worms, a bag of castings, bedding samples, a slideshow, and printed materials. Contact me for more information. They just love it, and I am always amazed at the really great questions. Everybody learns!
