In collaboration with Roswell High’s FFA chapter, the Goddard FFA chapter educated some Valley View Elementary School students on July 10 about a certain creepy, crawly that we often take for granted: worms.

With supplies from Ag in the Classroom, members and officers taught students about the importance of soil and the worms that inhabit it. The students were all given the choice to hold one of the many worms that were brought.

They learned the truth about why you shouldn’t cut a worm in half and that worms have, in fact, five functioning hearts. They learned that worms have bristles that help them move and breathe through their skin.

Kat Kelly brought one of her show rabbits to show how she is connected to agriculture. Needless to say, the kids were more than impressed and responded with excitement.

What a wonderful time, and the kids were tremendously well behaved. All in all, we are definitely hoping to be educating more students very soon.
