The Wonderful World of Worms
Who wants to hold one?
Me!, Me!, Me!
I want two!
There is nothing quite like opening the box of worms and asking
SK children if they would like to hold the worms.
Little hands cup together, ready to have one or two of the
Red Wrigglers put into their palms.
“Look how they are twisting and turning!”
“What do they eat?”
“Where do they live?”
“They’re so cute!”
For the past five years I have had the privilege of introducing
some of our youngest students to the wonderful world of worms.
From teaching the students that worms are “photo-pho-bic”
(afraid of the light) to all the good that the worms do in
our soil, having a worm composter and being able to introduce
worms to the world of little people has been a life changing
experience at Eitz Chaim Schools.
And now - as the first students have grown up - there is
still that curiosity about our world, what worms do and why
we should respect all living things.
