        Setting up an Inquiry about Soil and Earthworms

        In this video segment from Teaching Elementary Life Science, watch as teacher Jo Hannah Katz engages her second-grade class in a discussion about their investigation of soil and earthworms. She asks students to review their questions about different aspects of earthworm behavior and justify their predictions. Katz then explains that the investigation is designed to give students experience that enables them to better understand the composition of soil and the role earthworms play in it.
