Thanks to springtime rain showers, we have been observing an abundance of earthworms in our gardens and backyards. Though puddle jumping is encouraged during this rainy season, we recommend students take a quick break from splashing, and look closely to find earthworms hard at work keeping the soil healthy. This week’s lesson, “Exceptional Earthworms” teaches us about earthworm anatomy and the importance of our underground earthworm neighbors.
