Homeschool Investigations: Mud, Dirt or Soil?
Explore the differences between the earthly elements our plants grow in as we take a closer look at soil and learn about the nutrients needed to for plants to thrive. Investigate the properties and composition of soil, get messy with some mud and discover the value of compost and the helpful critters making it!
