Did you know that worms have 5 hearts, no eyes, and no nose? The preschoolers do! They have been studying worms in the classroom. In their two week worm unit, they have created a worm habitat, dug for earthworms, and watched the worms dig tunnels. They read books about worms and will be connecting their worm unit to their planting unit by putting the worms in the soil where our tomatoes, lettuce, basil, and parsley will grow. The worms will loosen the soil and allow more water to get to the roots to help our garden grow!
Digging (carefully) to add some worms to the habitat!
