Wednesday - Worm Day!

Here are some of the most interesting things we learned yesterday:

 - How to make a compost bin.
 - You should place the food on different sides of the compost bin so that the worms have to move back and forth across the bin.
 - Worms excrement make good compost.
 - Worms have legs that are so small that you can't see them.
 - Worms eat almost anything, even tea bags and coffee filters and coffee.
 - At the museum, we saw beautiful Native American art.  Then we used the ideas from the baskets to make our own flower pots.
 - At the museum, we saw art that was made out of painted fabric.
 - There's a tectonic plate 40 miles off our coast called the Juan de Fuca plate.  It could cause an earthquake tomorrow or in 100 years.
 - Stuff from the Japanese earthquake and tsunami is washing up on our shore.
 - We changed lyrics to a song to sing about Earth Week.

  1. Sounds like great fun! Worms have really small feet, so small you can't see them? That explains why they don't run very fast :-)

    Let's hope the earthquake waits 100+ years

    Keep up the good work!
