These activities bring the natural world into your classroom and deepen student understanding of and connection to all living things. After an exploration of soil, students design and construct terrariums. Sow bugs, earthworms, and crickets are placed in the habitat, and students observe and record changes over time. There are detailed instructions on setting up and maintaining the terrariums, along with concise biological information on small organisms that can become terrarium inhabitants.
