Do you teach about recycling around Earth Day? We actually teach our “Green Team” unit in the beginning of the year so the first graders can learn the importance of it early on. We always visit our local worm farm and have fun discovering worms. I thought I would re-visit a post about worms. These are combined posts from last March. The first is about making worm friends and the second is about making your own worm bin.

Happy Easter! I have had a great weekend with friends and family and I still have one more day off. Yay! When we get back, we will begin our mapping and community unit. We are changing that up a bit, so I will let you know how that goes.
With our community unit, we are tying in our green team unit. We will talk about how we can be good stewards of our community. On of the places we will visit is our local worm farm. Yes, you read that right a worm farm. You can get worms, worm poop, worm poop tea, and even bat guano (poop). I love teaching about worms. The kids love it, and they really are an important part of our Earth. Worm friends are something we make every year and kids love them. I mean I have older students who come back to me and tell me they still have their worm buddy as a stuffed animal at home. I thought I would share this simple project with you.
