Engage students in hands-on learning about soil layers and how worms help keep soil healthy!
In this activity, M&M's represent the bedrock (bottom) layer of soil, chocolate pudding represents the subsoil (middle) layer of soil, and crushed Oreos represent the topsoil. Gummy worms are an added bonus that ties in the reading passage "Why do we Need Worms?"
Students can work on the reading passage and comprehension check while they wait for their turn. to complete the project.
This project is simple, easy and fun to complete! Make your chocolate pudding the night before to further simplify the process.
