In this biology worksheet, students color and label the different parts of an earth worm. They complete 41 short answers and fill in the blank questions about earthworms.
In this segmented worms activity, students will review the characteristics of segmented worms including the earthworm, bristleworm, and leech. This activity has 7 fill in the blank, 3 true or false, and 3 matching questions.
Students explore the environment by researching insects. In this earthworm lesson, students utilize soil and plexiglass to build a see through wormery in which students can observe the worms at work. Students identify the benefits of earthworms and how they are essential to our agricultural food system.
Students use animation to create their own earthworm catching and eating its prey. They must draw storyboards before they start on the animation.
Students discover the importance of earthworms. In this earthworm lesson, students observe and discuss what they think earthworms are good for when in the soil. Students then listen to a book on earthworms and discuss the true importance of an earthworm.
In this segmented worms instructional activity, high schoolers will use a diagram of a segmented worm to complete 4 short answer questions about its body parts and structures.
High schoolers identify the external features of the earthworm. They view a video about different features of an earthworm. They research information about annelids on the Internet. They compare and contrast the earthworm with another annelid.
Comparative anatomy prevails in the lesson exploring diversity among invertebrates. Biologists examine physical characteristics of an earthworm from phylum annelida and a meal worm from phylum insecta. They also inspect a cricket and a crayfish, both arthropods, but from different classes. Plenty of direction, space for recording observations, and follow-up questions make this handout a thorough investigation of invertebrates for middle or high school biology classes, especially when studying classification.
Fifth graders build worm habitats and observe the activities of mealworms and earthworms. They experiment to show how the worms react to changes in light, temperature, touch, moisture, food, etc. They even watch as some of the mealworms change into beetles.
Learners study animal characteristics and identify animals.  In this classification lesson students examine the different invertebrates and explain their habitats.  this lesson is detailed with many activities that may be split to cover multiple lessons
Students inspect the anatomy of earthworms. For this earthworm lesson, students participate in a hands-on experiment as they analyze the structure of earthworms. Students demonstrate mastery through differentiated products. Lesson references a worksheet not available in this resource.
Seventh graders study earthworms and how the exotic species affect forest ecosystems and nutrient cycling.  In this ecosystems lesson students go into the field and take samples using a dichotomous key. 
Students navigate the Internet to learn to identify Earthworms. In this taxonomy lesson, students explore species of earthworms finding their characteristics and using photographs to identify the species. Students research information to enable them to catch and classify earthworms.
Students investigate the importance of the earthworm to our world. In this earthworm activity, students gain information about the important role earthworms play to keeping our soil healthy. Students participate in an experiment where they put earthworms, soil and food items in a jar to see what they worms do with the food item. Students record their daily observations and answer questions about what they observed.
Sixth graders work in groups to create questions an earthworm might ask about its life.  In this earthworm lesson, 6th graders examine earthworms and their function as soil conservationists. Students become familiar with the scientists that study earthworms.
Fifth graders examine the lifecycles of earthworms and mealworms. In groups, they make sketches, measure, and read about mealworms and earthworms. They travel between stations to examine a different part of their lives. To end the lesson, they discuss the differences between mealworms and earthworms.
In this life science lesson, students investigate the needs of all animals, including people. As a whole group, students create a habitat for an earthworm colony. SmartBoards are used quite extensively in this lively lesson.
High schoolers observe the aquatic segmented worm, Lumbriculus varigatus and the life processes. They explore the processes of nutririon, transport, regulation, locomotion, and removal of wastes.
Learners practice the habits of good readers in the content area of science. While reading a brief article about leeches, they compare and contrast the material read with other information they have encountered.
Fifth graders research the earthworm and write a one paragraph report on its anatomy and habitat. They learn about worms and how to dissect them through Video Streaming and virtual dissections, along with actually dissect a worm as well. In the end, the student is able to describe the earthworms function of organs to the teacher.
