In science we are learning about habitats. We started with the wiggly, creepy, crawly, squirmy wormy. The kids LOVE when I exaggerate their gross-ness and they say things like "Mrs. Schutte, there's a worm in your hair!" and I scream. It's a hoot- I stop at nothing to get the kids excited about something. :)
Anyway- here's what we did:
We read Wonderful Worms by Linda Glaser.
And then we talked about all the things in a worm habitat- dead leaves (for them to eat), tunnels, other animals, rocks, roots, etc.
We then made the worm habitats with our crayons and added a yarn worm. Here's how they turned out:
We are supposed to get the remnants of Hurricane Issac this weekend (about 4-6 inches), so maybe some of those worms will surface and the kids will actually get to see some worms this weekend and be able to recall what we learned. :)
Have a great Labor Day weekend everyone!!
