The Bristol Warren Education Foundation generously funded the WormWatcher kit - a hands-on, inquiry-based teaching tool that is an indoor, year-round, vermicomposting system specially designed for elementary education.

The learning targets are:
I can use dictionaries and glossaries to help me understand new words.L.2.4
I can use my senses to help me describe things. L.2.5
I can use adjectives to describe nouns. L.2.6
