Engage Your Kids with Your Own Worm Bin!

Caring for a living organism can help kids learn responsibility in a unique way.  And when that creature is a bunch of worms, that lesson becomes much more.  By constructing and taking care of your own worm bin children learn about nature’s lifecycles, become engaged with a unique habitat (one that they would likely be unaware of), and can produce their own nutrient-rich fertilizer that you can use in your gardens or flower beds at home.

Worm bins are an easy project to do as a classroom or at your own home.  The Nature Explore program has a handy, one-page guide to help you along your way.
