Students in Mrs. Frick’s first grade class at AC Moore Elementary School learned about weathering and soil erosion by conducting an experiment using chocolate chip cookies. Students used q-tips, toothpicks, and water to “weather” and “erode” crumbs from the cookies. What a delicious demonstration! Then, students created vermicompost in a classroom bin to learn more about one way of restoring soil to good health. Finally, students created posters illustrating the principles of healthy soil for the “Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper” poster contest sponsored by the Richland Soil and Water Conservation District. These posters are being used to educate the community about the importance of healthy soil!
