Observation of the roots:

  • Let the earth pads swell in a container by pouring water.
  • Pour the sachet of pozzolan into the vivarium.
  • Fill in with soil, tamping down a little.
  • Make small holes in the earth with a wooden pencil along the wall.
  • Sow the seeds in the holes and cover with soil, then water (sow well at the edge of the wall to see the roots clearly).
  • Place the vivarium in the dark by replacing the cardboard.
  • Every 3 days, remove the cardboard to observe the roots grow and note the observations on the observation table.
  • After each observation, put the vivarium back in the dark so that the roots continue to develop.
  • Water regularly but not excessively.

This observation workshop will allow you to realize the importance of roots for a plant. A true study lesson of living at home.

Watching earthworms:

  • Once all the vegetables have grown, we collect the soil to be able to observe the earthworms.
  • Fill the vivarium with half of the soil, tamping down a little.
  • Pour in the sand and add the rest of the soil, tamping down a little more.
  • Now add some dead leaves and some earthworms.
  • Place the vivarium in the dark, replacing the cardboard to protect the earthworms from light.
  • Every 3 days, remove the vivarium from its box to observe the earthworms and their galleries.
  • After each observation, put the vivarium back in the dark.

This observation workshop will help you better understand the enormous work that earthworms do in the soil. Remember to feed them with dead leaves on top of the soil and water regularly.
