Preschoolers Discover Worms
With our improved weather, preschoolers at Bowman Woods are able to learn more about the great outdoors.
They participated in a unit about insects and crawly things. The kids are learning how worms improve the amount of air and water that get into the ground. That makes the soil better and helps the plants and flowers grow!
It was a rainy day so the preschoolers and staff went on a walk after the rain to help the worms get back into the grass so they could have moisture to live. Once they were back inside, the kids practiced moving like worms by squirming around the room.
Some of the kids were brave enough to hold a worm. After they washed their hands, they were able to eat a gummy worm!
They also learned worms have no teeth, so they can’t bite!
