Abstract: 

The science of composting literally goes under the microscope in this video. Great, up-close photography gives viewers a chance to see the microorganisms and invertebrates that make up the "work force" of composting. A high school science lab provides the set for applying biology, life and physical sciences to understand how the composting process breaks down organic matter and turns it into a useful soil amendment. Includes a reference copy of "Composting in the Classroom," a comprehensive teacher's guide with research projects for high school students. Available on loan.
