Term 5 Week 2 Worm Charming

Year 4 took part in a Worm Charming competition.

Tamara explained what happened:

"We split the class in half, one side used water and the other used musical instruments. 

My side were using musical instruments.  We gently played the instruments near the ground to see if the vibrations would get the worms come to the surface."

Jake was on the other side and he said "We had to pour the water, which had a secret weapon added to it (some washing up liquid), over the soil. The idea was for the worms to think it was raining."

In the end Year 4 found the best way to do it was using both the instruments and soapy water.
