Hands-on Compost Demonstration
This lesson plan organizes students into groups that represent the main ingredients of compost: green materials, brown materials, water, air and soil. With the exception of the person designatedas Air, participants are grouped according to the relative amounts used in the compost making process and provided with pails of material. The compost materials are added gradually and mixed with a fork by 'Air'. The demonstration takes about 15 minutes to complete.
