Mrs. Katz and Ms. Huffman- 2nd Grade
Eco Initiative Spotlight:
Mrs. Katz and Ms. Huffman's second grade classes have been busy...
Second grade has been, vermicomposting- Composting food material with worms.
Mrs. Mantel did a class presentation to set up the worm bin the worms have been ordered and students will add compostable materials from their lunches once a week and observe the changes that occur.
The humus that the worms make will be taken out to the greenhouse to use for any planting that is done. Every student will get a turn to add compostable material, observe changes, and collect the humus.
By doing this we are creating less waste. We are taking care of the planet by composting materials instead adding them to the landfills.
In science we will investigate and observe the worm bin. In social studies we will discuss being good stewards of the earth and good citizens in general. worm bin log observation
Way to go second grade!
