Each week a group of students have been in charge of taking care of the vermicompost. The students have been very excited to feed the worms and are taking the initiative to bring food for them. I have allowed the students to feed the worms themselves within my lessons which provides students with an added responsibility. While they are feeding the worms I ensure that they are handing them with care and that they are covering the food so that it does not smell. Since the beginning of the three week block the number of worms has multiplied which is always a good sign as it confirms that the students are taking good care of the worms. These special visitors will be leaving us on Wednesday so we will have to say a final goodbye and feed them for the last time tomorrow.
