Worms Eat Our Garbage
By Mary Appelhof
This resource is the follow-up book to the previous book listed. Note the similar title. This teacher resource is a comprehensive set of classroom activities about worm composting. The activities are, for the most part, educationally sound although the authors could improve on the written objectives, connection to standards, and delineate evaluation components. This text should not be viewed as the final authority on the many topics included. Its description of Rachel Carson and her capability as a scholar and biologist would be challenged by true research scientists. There are also objectionable anthropomorphized animals in a few sections.
