Toad and Worms–June 1, 2011

First we found Larry Bob the garden frog/toad in the grass and brought him over to the garden to eat the bugs. Next we played a game of Museum tag and then Steph read The Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin during snack time. Each child was then given a big board brought over from the Provincetown Art Association and Museum by Bronwyn and some watercolor paints, a pencil, paper, brushes and water to assist their interpretation of any part of the garden. Next everyone was encouraged to examine the worms that Steph brought and then they were added to the compost bin. We learned that some worms can live to be 8 years old, sometimes you can see their poop inside of them that there are hundreds of kinds of worms in all different sizes.
