A comprehensive step-by-step guide to building an earthworm house.
This teaching resource is the perfect biological science project to use when teaching and learning about how living things live in different places where their needs are met. Building an earthworm house also provides a great opportunity for students to observe the external features of small animals.
It is important to note that there are various types of earthworms and that not all worm types are well-suited for composting. Red worms can tolerate warmer conditions and much higher worm densities. They can also breed and consume waste much faster than typical soil worms.
