In our Soils science unit, students investigate the properties of three soil components-sand, clay, and humus-as well as our local soil.  In Lesson 2, Students learned what happens to dead plants.  They researched worm facts and started a composting project using garden soil, worms, and plant remains.  The compost bags will be checked, and changes recorded every week for five weeks.  At the end of 5 weeks, the compost bags will contain a rich soil perfect for growing plants.
