Once inside we placed the worms on a tray with some dirt. Many began to wriggle around on the tray. The children were fascinated with their awkward movements! Some rolled and wiggled around and around while others inched forward in a very straight line. Some hid immediately in the dirt.
There was so much rich conversation happening as the children made observations about the worms. Many remembered which they had collected and compared their worm's movements to their friends'.
At morning recess the worms were safely returned to the grassy area outside. What an interesting morning!
