Learn how to create a cheap and easy indoor vermi-compost. A vermi-compost is a low maintenance worm habitat used to recycle food waste and has many content applications in the classroom. Learn how to captivate your student’s interests by incorporating live organisms and animal care into your science lessons. Educators will learn how to create a worm habitat and how to care for their worms. In addition, educators will virtually conduct lab investigations to learn about the physical characteristics and behaviors of worms, and explore soil properties, the process of decomposition and the important role of decomposers. Lesson modifications for virtual teaching and at home learning extensions will also be addressed.
