All About Composting
- Learn about composting: how to use compost, compost preparation, how to create high quality compost, and how to retain good compost health.
- Compost in a Bag Activity (refer to Teacher Resources)
- Alternative: Plan a class trip with a horticulture related organization where students can gain practical hands-on experience with composting or another related subject.
- Reflect in the plant journal on the class activity and what was learned. Express what you’d like to know more about, what you like / did not like. Brainstorm ways to incorporate what you learned from the class activity if it can be used for group or personal projects.
