Have your kids ever asked you where soil comes from? This free soil learning activity will explore facts about soil and answer those questions.
So, what is soil? In simple terms, soil is a combination of organic matter, organisms, minerals, liquids, and gases.
We rely on soil for our food production (plants and animals), nutrition, and water filtration. Without healthy soil, our agricultural systems would fail.
When you think about it, soil is critical to our existence!
