Using this blog, the students in the fifth grade can share the most important learning moments, exciting adventures, and special snapshots of our day. Check back each day for a peek inside our classroom!
Today the fifth grade had a parent from the TPS Green Team come in and teach them about worms because they are going to have their very own worm farm in the classroom. The parent talked about what the worms ate, slept in, and their soil. Basically they eat a lot of soft food like apples, banana peels, eggplants, and unbleached newspaper. If the worms saw something they did not like, they would avoid it. The worms mostly sleep in newspaper but they can also sleep in coffee grinds which they can also eat. The worms' soil is usually always moist so if you put in dry newspaper, it would be wet an hour later. Also, their poop is called castings and the fifth grade very much enjoyed this activity and we hope we can do other activity like this again.
