Everybody got to look at worms and the bin I've had going since last fall a bit closer, before preparing a bin to take into their classrooms. They shredded a bunch of newspaper for the bedding, we wetted it, and dropped the worms in. The bins will be housed in all the second grade classrooms during the school year, and returned to STARworks Garden in the spring, when we can harvest the castings!
