Decomposers | Foster

Today was so much fun. I had new Ranger Christina join me in educating the kiddos about composting. We alternated our dialog back and forth, evaluating their knowledge of the earthy subject – what they already knew and what they wanted to know. We taught them about decomposers (the Fungus, Bacteria and Invertebrates), what materials can go in the compost (“Do you think a worm would like to eat cheetos? What about a plastic bottle or gum?”), and lastly showing them the compost bin in the garden.

It was so much fun that we forgot to take pictures, except one, ha! These kiddos are checking out what’s in the bin … what do you see?
