    Good resource for teachers

    This book is made to be reproduced and used in the classroom. The worksheets have activities that are designed to be done with live worms. The pages are packed with information about worms. It does have information and activities about composting with worms but if you want to know more about that read Mary Appelhof's other book Worms Eat My Garbage.
