Different materials have different rates of decomposition, but up until now it has been difficult to observe. With the See-Through Compost Container, you can witness the decomposition and decay of different items side-by-side. The results may surprise you! You can try comparing a banana with a piece of paper, or check to see if an apple will decompose faster than an orange. The in-depth teacher's guide will supply you with plenty of ideas, a time chart, and science fair project possibilities.
The See-Through Compost Container's three compartment design allows budding ecologists to make simultaneous observations of three separate decomposition scenarios. Each compartment of the See-Through Compost Container has a stationary magnifying window to observe the decomposition process more closely. Also included are three thermometers to compare the temperature of the decaying materials. Survey the three compartments and their different decomposing substances as their rate of decay and temperature vary from day to day.

What Does It Teach?
The unique three compartment set-up of the See-Through Compost Container offers a one-of-a-kind apparatus for comparing decomposing materials. Students and teachers alike will marvel at their ability to witness the entire decomposition process and compare different materials during simultaneous decay.
"Students love this! The See Through Compost Container deepens inquisitive students minds by allowing them to make their own observations over a duration of time. The built in magnifying glass sections show in detail the process of change. Students use the peep holes to draw detailed annotated diagrams and absolutely love using these containers in Science. "
