Just getting to my mail now, sorry for the multiple responses...
 
I usually use earthworms as an introduction to comparative anatomy. We study the human body systems and then compare them to several different types of organisms (worms, fish, birds, frogs...). I bring in earthworms and let the kids make observations about the way the earthworms move and predictions about how, exactly, this is occurring since the EW's do not have skeletal systems...

Hi again Lindsay! I came across some info I obtained a while ago... Ever
tried vermicomposting as a class project? The worms can eat their weight
in food scraps each day although most reccomendations are that you only
give them half that so the scraps don't ferment and get nasty. Anyway, I
ran a Google search on it and there are lots of websites with good
information if you are interested. Take care! Ann
