When you think about it, composting is pretty amazing: put the food in a compost bin and it slowly disappears, turning into rich, healthy soil. Three aerated compartments enable kids to view the entire decomposition process clearly and make side-by-side comparisons between different materials. The included thermometers demonstrate temperature changes during decomposition process. It's a unique way to get kids learning more about composting and green living.
This set from Educational Insights includes a 5.25"D x 13"W x 8"H clear plastic box with faux grass top and aeration holes, three clear-view compartments with magnification spots, and thermometers. A teacher's guide provides usage ideas, timelines, and science fair applications to help kids learn about decomposition, composting, life cycles, and environmentalism.
