“EWWWW!” Was the response from the majority of 4th graders when we first introduced our worm habitat. “Gross….why would we WANT worms?” many of the students questioned. After reading about worms, examining our earthworms, and doing our own research on worms…many of the students have changed their opinions…and understand the value of worms to our earth!

Our unit started by reading the book, Diary of a Worm, by Doreen Cronin. (A humorous picture book chronicling the life of a worm.) This story made the students laugh, but really got the class thinking!
