    We now have 6 worm bins composting food scraps in the school. They are being used to supplement Kindergarten "Animals 2x2 unit," the 1st grade "Organisms" unit, the 2nd grade Pebbles, Sand, and Silt" and "New Plants" units, as well as the 5th grade "Ecosystems" unit. In the Spring they will be used to supplement the 3rd grade "Structures of Lfe" unit and the 4th grade "Animal Studies" unit. There are many curriculum connections. We are also using vinegar fly traps around the school and they have definitely controlled the fruit fly issue.
