Description

Overview:
Learning about our natural resources and how to maintain and improve them is a common thread throughout the K-6th grades. In fifth grade, students learn about soil composition, soil health, how to regenerate soil, and how to test the soil.  Based on the soil test and composition determination/s, we then discuss why we received the results we did, what the results mean, and why different samples from the same geographical area may vary.They learn about soil depletion, the importance of regeneration and management of the soil, and whether to use natural fertilizers or synthetic bagged fertilizers to build up the soil and for plant health. During the process, they learn what N, P, and K mean and how to read the fertilizer bag.
