Reflection: Student Feedback Oh My! Mealworms - Section 3: Explore


In the beginning, the students were checking the meal-worms every other day. Then they began to check the meal-worms once a week. They noticed that  some of the meal-worms died because we did not alter the oatmeal and the piece of apple soon enough. The oatmeal and apples formed mildew.  The loss was attributed to the temperature in the room. At night and on the weekend, the air is turned off at night.
