Exploring nature and learning how everything is vitally connected to the health of our earth, is so important. We’re very excited Earth Week is finally here, with Earth Day taking place on Thursday! While our Outdoor Nature Explorations will have to wait till lockdown is over, we’re still planning to dive right into our homeschool studies while we wait.
Really looking forward to learning more and teaching Abby about worms and vermicomposting. We’ve had our The Box of Life Vermicomposter for a few weeks now and it feels great knowing we are reducing waste and helping our planet!
Curious what vermicomposting is?
“Vermicomposting is a natural process where specialized composting earthworms eat organic waste and convert it into healthy, living soil, similar to what happens beneath the forest floor.
The Worm Studio is a great option for you to compost in the comfort of your home without the smells, pests or effort typically associated with outdoor composting systems.” — The Box of Life
Here is a little blurb about this fun book we picked up from Hintonburg Kids.
“Jump-start curiosity with this take-along field guide for children ages 4 to 8. From worms, birds, and spiders to trees, flowers, and clouds, young explorers learn what to look and listen for wherever they are — whether in a nature preserve, an urban park, or a suburban backyard. Seek-and-find lists, on-the-trail art projects, and discovery games get kids engaged in hands-on learning about nature, and a real pull-out magnifying glass helps them get a close-up glimpse of leaf veins, seed pods, and tiny insects. Filled with activities, checklists, and stickers, this interactive nature guide belongs in every kid’s backpack.” — Hintonburg Kids
Take care and have an amazing week!
