2018 - Elementary GLOBE Soils Module

Soils Module

Scoop the dog has gotten away again and it's up to the GLOBE Kids to find him. Along the way, they discover all the holes he's dug and the hidden world underground. In this story, students will learn about the different types of soil and the critters that live beneath their feet.

By the end of this module, students will know how to describe the different components that make up soil, discover the basics of decomposition, and understand why soil is important for plants and animals.
