Worms & Soil

Program Description

Digging for worms, feeling millipede tickles and listening to the hissing of a cockroach keep your little environmentalists giggling as they learn. These animals play a vital role in the food chain as decomposers, or nature’s recycling team! Students understand that soil is made from living and nonliving organic material as they compare sand, clay and garden soils. Healthy soil, along with sun and water, facilitate the life cycle of a plant.

Students develop a new understanding and deep appreciation for all bugs, soils and plants. They are so excited to take home the seeds they planted during this hands-on presentation!


This summer camp field trip is designed for no more than 35 students to keep the presentation engaging and hands-on. Your STEAM Presenter will bring a table for the live animals and supplies. The presenter sets up in one room, and additional groups rotate. Students will be working in small groups. 6 large tables with chairs is best, and groups may also sit on the floor. 

Presentations may be scheduled in the classroom, media center, gym, library or cafeteria.
