Creative Soil Conservation

Science and Children—February 2010

Take plant lessons outdoors with this engaging and inquiry-based activity in which third-grade students learn how to apply soil conservation methods to growing plants. They also collect data and draw conclusions about the effectiveness of their method of soil conservation. An added benefit to this activity is that the third-grade students played their part in beautifying the school with native plants while at the same time learning about plant conservation.
