About This Activity

What's in there? Worms, dirt, ...mycorrhizae? It's a microcosm of wonderment waiting to be explored. How does soil form, what's in there and what makes things grow, die or do nothing...? Come explore the world of dirt! Some people eat it, others wear it, paint with it, build homes with it--soil is so versatile and exciting. We'll look at stratification and differences in soils in different climactic zones, regions... and altitudes. We'll learn how ancient civilizations learned about soil's magic and how scientists communicate now. We will create dioramas, mini theatrical performances and a mask insert bug book. All students will assist in the garden at times. Older Students will go in depth into soil recording and measurement techniques and learning about instruments used to asses soil in areas as diverse as farming to seismic activity. Younger students will have lots of opportunities to engage in the tactile and other sensory qualities of soil by making mudpies, puddle stomping and looking for buried treasure.
