See inside the amazing world of worms and learn about their fascinating lifestyle and their valuable contribution to the world we live in. Our worm world kit has been specially designed by naturalist Nick Baker. It's a hands-on guide for budding naturalists and contains the equipment you need to observe and study the fascinating life of worms. The kit is designed to be fun and informative for kids of all ages.
“Worms are brilliant little animals, easy to take for granted and often going unnoticed as they live out their lowly lives right beneath our feet, and yet, we owe them a massive debt of gratitude.” Nick Baker
What you can observe in Worm World? When you first introduce worms to Worm World you will see how they move and how easily they can burrow under the soil. You will see how they churn and loosen compact soil. You will see them underground in their burrows and see how the tunnels they make allow air and water into the soil. By adding leaves you will see how they take them underground. An interesting experiment is to count the number of leaves they bury. Add about ten leaves each day and see how many are left on top the following morning. You’ll probably be surprised at the number they drag into the ground. After a few weeks you will see how they mix up the soil. Gradually the layers of sand and soil will become mixed. You may see a worm resting on the surface, once you disturb it you will see how quickly it moves back into the soil.
