At our in-school 3s field trip last week, educators from Oxbow Farms brought the farm to us and taught us all about earthworms! The kids got to dig through the dirt and find, hold, and explore these ecosystem-essential critters!
As the saying goes, the best way to learn is to get your hands dirty!:)
Each student got a plate full of dirt to explore
Once they found their crawling friends, they held them and examined them closely to see the dirt that they ate!
We learned all about how these critters are vital to keeping soil rich for plants to grow in.
