RE: bones to Worms?

 I too think it's a great idea and I'd like to see some pictures. My little
ones have been digging up worms from under the mulch in the playground for
the past week and I decided I might as well use it as the start of a unit.
I think they'd love doing the rubbings.

Just finished an "underground drawing" project with 1st and 2nd graders in
conjunction with their science unit on "pebbles, sand, and silt". They
first did texture rubbings of all sorts of textured things like sandpaper,
wood, lace, Lego surfaces, embossed wallpaper, screen, etc. on various
colors of lightweight paper until they had a nice selection of papers.
These were then cut into rocks and pebbles and arranged in layers on
construction paper. We talked about plants being above ground with their
roots stretching downward through various layers as well as worms and their
tunnels, perhaps mouse holes. We ended up spending several art sessions on
these, finishing them off with subtle flourishes of gold glitter. They are
hanging in the hallway with the children's sentences asking "Can you find
three worms?" and "My drawing shows a mouse in her hole, a worm and gold!"
and the like. Our principal is really proud of these.
