The Window Planter and Wormery enables children to discover and observe how plants grow above and below the ground. It helps children to be able to name the different parts of the plant as well as to understand what a plant needs to survive. They will be able to observe the water going down through the soil.
Pupils will be able to see the plants root systems develop for themselves, and will enjoy spotting the creatures that live beneath the soil and observing their movements. Worms, ants and millipedes etc. can be a fascinating topic of study and the sliding shutters are designed to reveal their life-cycle with the minimum of disturbance.
