Tomorrow inshaAllah we will go over the anatomy of a worm but I prepared for the lesson today.
We wanted a brief and not complex description of the parts of the worm. I used this website: http://urbanext.illinois.edu/worms/anatomy/index.html and used the basic parts for the boys to learn. We knew there were more parts like the gizzard etc but to keep it simple we introduced parts they were familiar with and a new one called segments, the rings around the worm.
You can use stockings for this, we stuffed the inside with plastic bags and then used tape to make the rings around the body..the segments
We labeled each part and then we put the words and their definition on the wall, and it is written in basic terms that they could read on their own, whenever they want to go visit the wall and talk to each other..then they will be able to read it inshaAllah! Without help..so tomorrow looks like another wormy day inshaAllah
But today was a worm hunt, in the fields and bringing the lessons to the streets LOL
