Melville Intermediate - School Worm Farms

On Friday 19th February 2010 a group of students learned from the vice principal Mrs Bleakan how to do a worm transfer. They got newspaper,food scraps and they got a hand full of soil and worms and sorted through it. the school uses the worms to make soil for the gardens and then we spread the mulch all over the garden.


  1. Hi, Guys!
    Thank you so much for leaving comments on our blog! We totally love them! We think your site is awesome too! Mr. Webb is a very clever man who can manage to get so many vistors to your site! Congratulaions!

  2. Hi, my name is Brittani and I am a student at the University of South Alabama. At the University I am in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class. This class is all about technology in the classroom and the use of technology as a whole! I really enjoyed watching this video. I think filming is an awesome way to teach and learn! I really just feel like students get so much more out of hands on activities and I think it helps them understand more when they can actually do rather than just listen to lectures! I also have a blog where I keep up with various post and videos assigned to me in my EDM class. If you would like to see the comments I made about this blog and many others it can be found at

  3. Hi Melville Intermediate- We are a yr 5/6 class in a school in Dunedin-called St Clair. We are beginning a worm farm project too. We are upscaling from a small inside farm to a large bath outside, will keep you posted and send you our blog address later- good job on your project !

  4. I think this blog site is really awesome! You guys are super smart and it looks like you are learning a whole lot! Keep up the great work and don't get to dirty with all those worms. =]

  5. This is a great site. It looks like you all are having a lot of fun but while also learning. When you can combine those two things there is no limit to learning. Great job!

  6. I was really interested while watching your guys video. I'm from King City CA, my names Isaiah and I'm in Mr. Millers classroom. I've never tried doing this before! I knew worms helped soil but i haven't tried it. I now have something to experiment with. Have you guys personally tried doing this at home? If so what was the result? I love that you guys record videos to learn, it's fun to watch. I'd really appreciate it if you visited my blog. I am currently in the EduBlog challenge.

  7. Hi my name is Chelsey I really liked this video it was really interesting. I always thought that worms were really creepy, but now there kind of interesting. That would be a good learning process for bugs. I would once like to go to a camp like that!! I have a website for blogging too here is link to my blogging website. Hope you like it !!
    Bye :)

  8. Hi my name is Alexander. I really liked how you guys are having a school worm farm. I also have a worm farm in the Philippines. But now I can't take care of it because I'm already here in the United States. I also have a website that I can share with you guys. In this website I made a video about the Philippines. I hope you like it!!!!!
