Experience how plants and animals rely on dirt while digging in!

Using this hands-on experiment kit, students collaborate, reflect, and problem-solve their way through tangible exploration of the origins and make-up of dirt. They learn about the physical properties of soil, then experience it using their senses. Their imagination is their only limit as they build like a beaver, tunnel like an ant, or burrow like a crayfish.

Students will see for themselves how humans have learned from animals, insects, plants, and even fungi to construct and cultivate. Delve into the differences between dirt and soil and apply this loamy lore to design an ideal farm. Through a multi-subject integration approach, learners will delight in rolling up their sleeves to experiment, engineer and excavate. Includes enough supplies for up to 30 students. Full contents list below. Recommended for Lower Elementary.
