  • Procedure

    Today we buried 8 items in the ground 8 to 10in.to see what would happen to them over time.
  • ground tempature

    ground tempature
    so after we dug and covered everything up im coming up with a solution that the apple will decompose the most out of the 8 items because the ground is warm so the worms will eat the apple and ants could make holes through the apple.
  • Dig day
