Watching Worms

On Friday morning Room 2 spent some time with some slippery slimey visitors.  They came from Mrs Scott's garden and they were hiding in the dirt! We turned the lights off because they don't like the light. They were ...  squiqqly, wiggly worms!

Some of the things we have learned about worms are...

Isaac - casts are earthworm poo!
Daniels - Worm Fact - the skin is covered with a coating called mucus
Emily, Te Rangimarie Worm fact - the North Auckland worm can grow up to 1.3 metres long.
Maxworms create tunnels as they move through the soil.
Molly - tiger worms prefer to live in compost heaps and worm farms.

We read on the internet that there is a worm that can grow six and a half metres long!
