Fifth Grade Students Build Terrariums
Anna Lewis from the Discovery Center in Pierre, SD came to the Upper Elementary to teach fifth grade students about terrariums. They learned that soil is not just “dirt”, instead, it is a living “coat” on the earth. Soil has nutrients, bugs, leaves, pebbles, roots, and water. Groups of four students worked together to make their own terrarium habitats. To build their terrarium, they used a clear plastic container with a lid. First they filled it 1/3 full with soil and added twigs, bark, grass seeds, and moss. Next they added worms and roly poly bugs, also known as pill bugs. Then they watered their habitats. A few days later they found grass growing and bugs crawling around. The students had fun.
