Seventh graders in Ms. Betty Eschmann’s science classes at Webster County Schools have been studying about worms and their body structure. They learned that earthworms are segmented worms made up of many linked sections. They learned that earthworms have a brain, reproductive organs, a digestive tract, and a nerve cord. Students recently experimented with earthworms’ responses to lightness and darkness and moisture and dryness. They found that they prefer a dark, moist climate.
