Worm farming in Room 1

In Room 1 we have been learning about worm farms. Natalie came to teach us what worms like to eat. Did you know the Tiger Worms in the worm farm don't like onions, garlic or spicy food?
We went outside to look at our school worm farm and Natalie showed us the different layers.
We even got to make our own mini worm farm. First we put in wet newspaper and wet leaves, next soil and then some Tiger Worms. The worms started wriggling into the soil, where it was dark and cool. On top we put a piece of banana skin for the worms to eat. Natalie put air holes in the lid then we put them in a cool dark place. 
We think our worms will be very happy in their new homes!
