Through a series of hands-on workshops, your students discover the vibrant world hidden right under their feet! They observe life forms in soil with magnifying glasses and microscopes, and compare the properties and texture of various soils. Students also determine what plants need, and learn how to keep soil and its inhabitants healthy.
