Wow. When I started the homeschool adventure I had no idea that we would be farming worms. Seriously. But at Christmas we received two cool science kits: butterflies and worms. We decided to save the butterflies for spring, and do the worms first. They are boys, so that explains that!
See the black sides? They're actually panels that you can slide out, so you can see where the worms are, kinda like an ant farm.

And they only need to be fed once every 2 or 3 weeks! Awesome!

The kit came with several experiments you can do, so I'm sure we'll have a weekly worm visit around here for the next couple of months.
And the cool part (from Mama-view)? No cage to clean, no water bowl to fill. And after 3 to 4 months we'll take them outside and dump them into the garden! Perfect timing!
And the boys? Well, they got to help fill the worm farm and were fascinated by the 30 or 40 squigglers we put in there! They can't wait to see what's happening in there tomorrow!
