Changes in the Worm Farm

We are getting ready to change themes.  There are other changes in the classroom we want to look at first…

This is how our Worm Farm looked a few weeks ago.   The we added a container of red wigglers (about 30 worms) to the farm.

Do you see any changes?

The students wanted one end of the habitat marked as the kitchen.  This is where we add the food.  The earthworms travel from one end to the other and the food quickly disappears.   The newspaper is getting darker and we will need to add another layer as the worms eat it.   The Worm Farm will be with us, now, until the end of the school year.  Since we have added adult and young worms, we hope to keep the life cycle going.  Maybe we will not need to buy worms next year?
