Time Allocation: 40 minutes*
Activity Level: Moderate
An activity idea before you construct the worm farm, you may want to invite the young learners to form small groups and create a labelled cross-section drawing detailing the layers of the worm farm, this will help them understand the construction process. The young learners will need to have sound understanding of the purpose of a worm farm and the earthworms’ specific needs before commencing the worm farm construction. This activity will require adult supervision and some ground work to prepare the materials. Adequate preparation of materials beforehand is important and safety instructions are essential. The time allocation for this activity is based on constructing one worm farm.
