Our SCIENCE week involved the study of SOIL.
We focused on the importance of WORMS to our SOIL
What did we find?
The largest earthworm ever found was 6.7 meters
Some earthworms found in NZ can glow in the dark
Earthworms can eat 50-100% of their body mass per day
Earthworms breath through their skin
Why are worms important to our soil?
They help drain and aerate the soil
they help recycle nutrients back into the soil which helps plants grow
Our Learning Journey
Some of us love worms and some of us don't
We found heaps of worms out for a stroll just outside our classroom
Some of us were so intrigued with how they move
We came across Room 25 and 26 hard at work, digging
so we shared our learning with some of our junior students
then with a buddy we created an information poster showing our learning
