Pet Worms

by Cody (grade 6)

The Black Butte School wanted to get school pets for the students, so they got worms! We students get to study and learn about worms and how they make soil. After lunch, we feed them banana peels and other kinds of leftover food. After the worms eat, they poop, which makes rich soil that can grow plants very quickly.

In a week we saw that the worms had already started making plants grow in their soil. The soil made the plants very happy as they grew quickly in the worm's soil. Here are some fun facts about worms. Worms don't have a gender so they can get worms pregnant while they are pregnant. Worms also don't have lungs so they breathe out of their skin. Lastly, they are light sensitive so they can see light but they can't see people.

Later on in the school year, we are going to grow plants in our greenhouse using the worm's soil. In the meantime, we are going to try to do our best to help these worms so we can see them grow and reproduce.
