is a wonderful teaching tool which can introduce and
explain far reaching concepts like life cycle, the
importance of death and decomposition, soil recycling,
resource management, garbage and landfills.
all, composting activities are just plain fun! Children get to touch dirt, hold worms,
build compost piles, set up and explore worm bins,
analyze what they’ve eaten for lunch, and learn
songs about worms and other wiggly creatures.
Various resources are available for teachers
and schools in the unincorporated area and Scotts
Valley to involve their students in composting and
recycling through the Green Schools Program.
