Students explore the process of decomposition. In this ecology and measurement lesson plan, students prepare a worm home to be used for vermicomposting. Students weigh a group of worms and the added food, recording this information on a data sheet. Students compare the weight of the worms to the weight of the food eaten and compute percentages. Students use observation skills to discuss decomposition.
First graders study baby animals. In this animal science lesson, 1st graders read the book Chickens Aren't the Only Ones and create a pop-up book of animals that hatch from eggs. Students read another book Animals Born Alive and Well and create a collage of animals who are not born from eggs.
In this 4-H swine activity page worksheet, students study the parts of a hog, complete a swine word search, complete a career scavenger hunt, and develop a swine budget. They also read pig facts and learn how to select a hog while developing their life skill of responsibility.
