The Worm Farm...

This year our homeschool group split the term's up into themes and this Term's theme was 'Earth'... so last week at our homeschool meeting Dianne (A homeschool Mum) organised lots of science stations with different activities based around earth and water (Water was the theme for last term). To finish the morning off each family got to make a worm farm - simply using a large glass jar, layers of sand & soil and mesh for the top - oh and of course worms. To say Pernella was excited is an understatement!



My girl is just crazy about creepy crawlies!



These worms will be great in my vegetable garden once we get it up and running...





So this week there has been lots of observing of our new pet's, feeding them and researching about looking after worms on the internet. This weekend Pernella and Charlie are going to be making a larger worm farm using an old fish tank we have.
Don't you just love nature!

This looks like a great project! And a great way to use up some of the jars I have been collecting. Thanks for sharing.
