Help needed to assemble a temperature and moisture sensor to study vermicompost

Hi!

I need help on the recommendations and details on what I should purchase for add-ons to study the temperature and moisture content of vermicompost.

As I am new to arduino, i would also require some help in the programming code as I am required to teach the middle school students to assemble a simple temperature and moisture sensor.

Thanks!

check the waterproof DS18B20 for temperature and probably an analog moisture sensor for gardens will work.

The Dallas Temperature Control Library contains examples to get started.

adding the analog sensor should not be a big issue, check analogRead() tutorial page. - http://www.tinyosshop.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=458 -
