From the University of Illinois Extension Schools Online Program, this kid-friendly website introduces third- through fifth-grade students to the world of worms (first mentioned in the September 9, 2002 NSDL Scout Report for the Life Sciences). The site addresses a nice blend of worm topics including history, taxonomy, and anatomy. Student visitors will enjoy a number of interactive, online worm activities as well. The website also contains a section about making and managing a worm bin. For teachers, the site provides Illinois Statewide Goals and Objectives, additional tips for keeping a worm bin in the classroom, and several suggested links. This site is available in both Spanish and English.
