Terrific terrariums

We have been studying plant and animal life in science. We made terrariums in class yesterday. It was a dirty job, but we had fun doing it! One student brought his own cactus to plant in his terrarium. Students brought twigs, leaves, rocks, and worms, too. The students planted grass seed in their terrariums. We discussed how important it is to keep the soil moist and to make sure the worms has something to eat.
