In School - The Worms Are Here!!

The worms came today!

It was very exciting, at first. Then I remembered that I still had a little work to do on my worm bins. I did it though.
I had to drill holes in one that I hadn’t done yet.
I had to moisten the newspaper.

That was a lot of newspaper, for those of you who are thinking about doing a worm farm here’s a tip, if you are using newspaper and are shredding it before hand plan on shredding at least twice the amount per bin, I made that mistake while doing it.

For my experiment we are focusing on weight.

So, we were separating the worms (1000 of them) into two bins. We had to measure out half of them for each bin.
In other words we (I) had to get in that bag of 1000 worms and pull them of the bag and measure out half the worms.
I have to admit that when I saw that bag of worms I didn’t really want to do it. So I could get the feel for it my dad pulled out one worm and placed on my hand.
(I also have to admit that it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be).
That’s the end of my first day with the worms. They are all settled in. Now I just have to figure out how to keep up with our 1000 extra house guests.
