Life Lab

Life Lab cultivates children's love of learning, healthy food, and nature through garden-based education.

Materials:

  • Fresh, "living" worm compost.
  • Download and print up worm bin bingo pages and laminate or cover in plastic sleeves.
  • Pennies, beans, or other small items to mark bingo cards.
  • Tweezers, hand lenses, and/or sticks to explore worm compost.

 How to play:

Pass out bingo cards to each child or pair of children.

Place one large scoop of worm bin content on a piece of newspaper and place on a table or the ground for a pair or small group of children to explore.

Have children explore the worm bin contents and critters and fill in their bingo cards.

Switch cards and continue playing.

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
