1st Cycle Science enrichment projects (Red worms and composting)

In our Enrichment Project lessons, our group has been investigating red worms and how they produce compost with leftover food. We've shown the year four pupils what happens to our food when we don't eat it. We are explaining to them all the process of how worms make compost, what they eat, how to keep them alive and how much quantity of food they should eat. The children came with us to the compost area, in school, where we have a box full of compost and red worms. They were really interested and focus on our experiment, always wanting to participate, give food to the worms and take care of them. Our experiment gave wonderful results thanks to the kids who were always smiling.
