Creative Soil Conservation
Smith, Martha
Science and Children, v47 n6 p44-46 Feb 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. (Contains 2 figures and 1 online resource.)
