What if worms were a meter long?  Imagine trying to get that on your fishing hook?  Well - in NZ we do have worms that long!   The Science Learning Hub has a new science story about the native earthworms of NZ.  It includes information about our giant worm.  There are also worms that glow in the dark and an explanation of how our native worms have been here since the cretaceous period so they are unique in the world!  

Finding out more about earthworms is a great way to practice your observational skills. Observing is more than just looking - it is about noting details, using all the senses, collecting information and comparing what you see with what you have seen before.  What tools have you got that can help you observe better, add detail, collect your observations?
