IWs Composting Experiment

In Week 2 of the term IW came to school with an old PET bottle and shared her composting experiment with us. Some students tried to get a photo of the bottle and what was inside it but it was hard to photograph it close up.

IW can make a post about what she is discovering through this mini-experiment and predict what will happen in a few weeks.

IW here... these pictures show my PET composter and the green picture shows a bird's eye view of the organic material I used: small pieces of apple, a pear core, and crushed up oranges from my tree at home.

Thank you IW for being inspired and helping us all learn about what happens when organic material breaks down and turns into compost.

I am really excited about how IWs composter works. I wonder how much liquid has come out so far?
