Summer Fun

It’s the perfect time to try out some fun experiments outside to help young students discover more about our incredible world!
World Book Kids offers a section on Science Projects with some great activities to teach kids about animals including this one that demonstrates how to make a wormery.

Students will be able to see for themselves how earthworms tunnel through the soil by putting them into a special container called a wormery. Students can watch the worms stretch and pull their bodies as they move through the tunnels.

Materials:

• powdered chalk
• various types of soil, such as sand, earth, or peat
• 2 plastic bottles, 1 large and 1 small
• earthworms

Procedures:

Description: c3692171. Ask an adult to help you cut the tops off both bottles. Place the small bottle inside the larger one, and put a layer of one kind of soil around the outside of the small bottle.

Description: c3692182. Sprinkle some powdered chalk on top of the first layer. The chalk will help you to see the worm tunnels more easily.

Description: c3692193. Fill up the large bottle in this way, with another layer of a different kind of soil and then another layer of chalk. Leave a space of about 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) at the top.

Description: c3692204. Add a layer of dead leaves or grass cuttings at the top and sprinkle enough water to moisten the soil, being careful not to saturate it.

Description: c3692215. Now dig up a few large earthworms from the ground and put them in the space at the top of your wormery.

Description: c3692226. Cover your wormery with a cloth, because worms don’t like the light. Leave it for a day before looking to see what the worms are doing. Always keep your wormery covered when you are not looking at it, and don’t forget to water it lightly when the soil feels dry.
