Before the holiday, one of our 4th grade classes learned about the ingredients to make great compost. We went over the 5 key ingredients desired for great compost: greens, browns, decomposers, air and water.
After this, the students were split into 4 teams and had the task of gathering all the elements to make our first compost mix on the school campus including sticks, brown leaves, food trash (brought in from my home), paper bags and water . The students had lots of fun going one by one as they gathered the ingredients (placed in different areas around the school garden). Here’s a pick of one of the teams working together to complete the full compost recipe in their team bucket and we look forward to using our compost in the garden!
