Working Worms

Learners investigate how earthworms mix and till the soil. Each student brings in a 1 gallon plastic milk jug. Holes are poked into the jug, bedding mixture is added, some earthworms are added, and some food for the worms. Additionally, each student fills out a Worm Adoption Certificate. A very clever lesson!

Lesson Planet helps me search from such a large variety of creative and innovative teaching ideas from dedicated teachers. I am always looking for ideas to better teach my students and solicit the help of others in the education field. Many of the lessons guide students from concrete to abstract learning. Keep up the great work!
