The kindergarten class at Palouse Prairie School of Expeditionary Learning embarked on a three month expedition on earthworms. Throughout this expedition, the students learned about the habitat of earthworms. They built habitats in the class and made scientific observations and conducted experiments. They also visited an expert at the University of Idaho, Dr. Jodi Johnson-Maynard to learn more about worms. They studied the art collage of Eric Carle, Lois Ehlert and Ashley Wolff. The students worked hard knowing they would be sharing their knowledge with the world. Please enjoy their book and hard work.
