Composting in Kindergarten

Kindergarten students in room 110 have been learning all about the cycle of organic materials through composting in and out of the classroom. The students were introduced to their red wiggler worms and made them a wonderful home inside a plastic bin. They made a comfy, delicious home for their new friends using damp newspaper. Now the students are able to compost their banana peels, apple cores, and paper towels instead of sending it to the landfill. Since the worms can’t keep up with all the organic waste from breakfast and snack students have started composting outdoors in a tumbler. The food waste mixed with dead leaves and small twigs will create some wonderful soil for planting in the spring. Which will complete the composting cycle.
