ATLAS Academy

We have wiggle worms!

ATLAS students this year are challenged every week to put their hands on whatever the lesson is and Mrs. Prathers science class was no exception. There were a couple students, however, that were a little apprehensive about this one. Mr. Seele and Mr. Spencer joined the class to give the kids a lesson on the benefits of Recycling and creating compost. Students learned that Recycling not only has a positive benefit for the environment, but also your back pocket. Things did get a bit slimy though when Mr. Spencer gave the kids the opportunity to play with worms as he explained how the worms were crucial in the creation of compost.  At the end of the day, the kids learned to be aware of our disposable society and ways to not only create greener society, but also put a little green in the back pocket while they are at it.
