As we learned about food chains and food webs, we saw once again that there certainly is a circle of life…from producer to consumer to decomposer. We started our vermicomposting bin last week. Our friends, the worms, are doing their business as we fed them vegetable and fruit scraps. We hope to see the “fruits”of their labor in a few months as they make rich dark soil.
We will sample foods of the California Indians this week….berries, nuts, seeds, dried fish and dried meat. Besides learning that the California Indians were hunters and gatherers, what else have you learned about them? What other natural resources did they use?
