All About Earthworms
This month one of our ELM coaches, Kellie Hales, decided to do a literacy through science lesson on earthworms. Kellie read a nonfiction book and did several experiments with the children, but she also provided the classroom with live worms and a habitat (worm farm). The classroom is now able to log the transformation of the worm farm in various ways; for example, counting the number of tunnels/worms they see (math) or observing the amount of food the worms have eaten and making predictions (science).
