We have a worm composter in our classroom. Students put their organic waste and cut up scholastic flyers to help take care of them.
Grade 3D- Ms. Rachel- Students read about making a compost using the Nelson literacy readers in partners. They participated in creating a procedural writing piece called "how to make a worm farm." Then students collected the materials needed outside and made a real compost.
We have been composting all compostable materials from ALL Classrooms and from the Staffroom for several years. This material is put into a compost pile that is then used to fertilize our school vegetable garden!
Worm CompostingTwo classes in our school have started to use the compost collected at lunch to add to a worm composter. The classes are learning about decomposition and how the compost breaks down with the aid of worms!
