Vermicomposting

Thanks to the help of Mrs Barr, Beaver Brook and Mrs Kellner, 2nd graders are now composting with worms! The setup is in our STREAM room and the grade 2 students will be composting their snack-waste throughout the year. While we have already been composting lunch-scraps with Mr. Martus for over a year now, this is our new 'inside' setup!
We learned about the kinds of worm,
the composting process and got

up-close-and-personal
with our wiggly composting critters.
The students are enjoying this 'vermitask!'
