Yuck! Worms!

GLOVER“Mom, why do worms go to the sidewalk when it rains?”  I answer that I don’t know, then tell him to pick them up and throw them in our garden.  Of course that leads to his next question, “Why?”  Before another worm question can be asked,  the idea for a new mini unit study is already forming in my head.  And since the weather forecast is calling for more showers, I am thinking now will be a good time to begin.

I found this at our library for the younger boys, but we will all read it because we all love picture books.

Because very few science studies are complete without a lapbook project,  we’ll download from here  http://www.homeschoolshare.com/worms.php

Worm jokes for fun from a wonderful kids and garden site  http://www.kidsgarden.northwestwigglers.com/worms-and-bugs/worm-jokes/

And for the grand finale,  gummy worms and the movie, How To Eat Fried Worms.

In case you are wondering why the worm crossed the road, I know that answer.  To get away from the chicken!
