What is Compost?

Many children are familiar with compost bins, but what is compost exactly? In this science worksheet, children learn that not just humans compost—nature itself is also a composter! Young environmentalists learn the definitions for "organic," "decomposed," and "mulch," then review what they've learned by labeling a diagram of the composting cycle. This resource fits in well with a second or third grade earth and space science unit.
