Worms Everywhere!

What is going on with worms taking over the Grade 5 hallway?

“In science we are taking care of worms.We feed the worms every Monday and put the food in specific places in the wormery. We often take the worms out and study them, then we make some questions that we want to find out about the worms. After that, we choose one question to study. We then make a diagram that helps you find your answer. At the end you put your diagram into action and then list and observe what you saw the worms do.” -Aqilla

What do you know now about worms that you did not know before?

“Worms are sensitive to light. The first reaction is burrow itself in the ground. Some color lights the worms do like such as the dark colored lights. Why? My predictions that the worms are used to being in dark places so they really didn’t mind that much.” -Roi

“Blue is the best color of light if you had a pet worm.”-Robbie
