The Rotten Truth

Young scholars demonstrate and explain the decomposition process. They list the methods and ingredients for making compost. Each pair is provided with a Ziploc quart bag. Students are provided with a "Decay Buffet." They place one small piece of each item into their bags. They then add 1/2 cup of soil to their bags and lightly mist the contents with a plant mister. Young scholars create a compost bag journal where they observe their bags and record what they see happening inside.

The lessons have helped me develop my own as well as saved me hours of time. I have more than one grade level that I am teaching and the professional quality of the material has been invaluable.
