This project tested a curriculum and team-teaching model to enhance secondary student awareness of how soil health, as enhanced by earthworm activity, plays an important role in sustainable agriculture. Evaluation revealed that team teaching was effective in conveying this material to students. A follow-up project will adapt the curriculum for science classes (grades 3 to 12) throughout Iowa.
