Product Description

Here's an long-term project that allows students to observe decomposition over time. This handout asks your students to use three 2-L bottles to build a see-through decomposition viewer, then fill it will soil, leaves, food scraps, paper, and more. Over time, students will keep a journal of changes in the decomposition process - texture, smell, pH, dampness, etc. At the end of the experiment, students can make a small children's book with illustrations that explain the decomposition process!

This product comes in WORD format, so it's easily edited.

*This lab requires supplies: 2-L bottles, scissors, tape, and materials to fill the decomposition bottle.
