"The Soil Around Us" Project

Young geographers collect samples of different kinds of soil to match to the soil terms in Barry Rudner's rhyming book Filet of Soil: dirt, mud, dust, soot, etc. They start a glossary for the project on index cards or large sheets of paper and post them in the hall for others to see! Invite a younger class to the hall to hear verbal presentations of the cards! Special treat: Follow the links to inspiring community-building activities, discussion builders.
