People put worms in their compost bins to help the composting process (Note: be careful about adding to much acidic items like tomatoes, oranges, and onions as they can burn the worms). The worms also aerate the soil by digging tunnels, this brings plants the oxygen they need to grow.
What you will observe with this experiment? Students will view the worms mixing the soil and sand. They do this two ways, by digesting it and by traveling through it. You will also get to see how the worms travel through the soil by creating tunnels, which help to aerate the soil. Just make sure to keep your worms fed and the soil damp
