Spend a day with Earthworms and make it a “worm kind of day.” Here is an overview of how to investigate and observe Earthworms for a life science investigation. Students can read about worms prior to the investigation so that their observations can have deeper connections.
Use a brace map or another form of idea mapping to help students record their observations and use them in a writing extension piece.
