Compost Garden Science Project

Hi everyone! My name is Lauren and I am a preservice teacher at UMBC for elementary education and I was posting to see if there are any educators who have any experience creating a compost garden? I am creating a two week project lesson plan for a 5th grade science class and want to base it around comparing the growth patterns of a regular garden versus a compost garden. Does anyone have any information or tips on the topic?

Thank you!

Here are a few articles on this topic from NSTA. Let me know if you can't open it. I think it sounds like a great lesson idea! :
