Worms have arrived in room 306. It took them a few days, but they are now doing their best to escape. It isn't going well. The worms that arrived are pretty small, so we have night crawlers from a bait shop to check out. They are bigger and easier to see the anatomy of our worms. So cool. Check out our worms!
What are earthworms? Worms are invertebrates. They don’t have any bones or teeth. The body of an earthworm is made up of segments, which look like rings wrapped around their bodies. Most adult earthworms have between 150 to 170 segments. To find the head of an earthworm, look for the saddle. The saddle is a smooth band around an adult earthworm’s body. Watching the kids use flashlights to find body parts…priceless. They were amazing scientists! We took notes, illustrated our findings and shared what we discovered with one another.
