This lesson is wonderful for teaching writing & bridging the gap between reading & science.
I love using this quick read aloud to gain interest & begin thinking about the life of an organism, in particular - a worm! As we begin to move deeper into research of living organisms, each student builds an ecosystem for a REAL worm that they name.
I use this printable to have students write the diary for their worm. The results are always hilarious & thoughtful!
