Outdoor Hour: Keeping a List

We didn't get out at all for the Green Hour Challenge last week. I'm hoping to do two days this week now that it is getting warmer. The fifth Green Hour Challenge assignment was to make a list of things you observed that are in your area of focus. We only found some earthworms, but that is what we are focusing on this week anyway. Here are some other items that we observed:

There is a worm in here, although you can't see it very well:


We are making a wormery to observe how worms mix soil. :-) I will post pics and worm links as soon as we are done with the experiment.

Apr. 2, 2008 - Worms

Posted by HarmonyArtMom

Worms are fascinating to me. We just completed an earthworm dissection and I couldn't get over how interesting their insides were. We had a worm bin once, a very long time ago but it was a very interesting project.

Thanks for sharing your unique focus with us.
