First Graders & Earthworms!


As part of a natural sciences study, first graders spent a week learning about earthworms and why they are important to our Earth. After researching and analyzing informational texts, the students corresponded with the Antioch Garden Club to explain what they learned by writing letters and interacting over Zoom. The Antioch Garden Club graciously sent back gummy worms, a letter, and seeds for the students to plant at home. This experience helped reinforce the importance of earthworms, pollinators, and being kind to our environment.
