Our class of 38 students is entering into an exciting unit on Soil Composition! The essential question we are asking our students throughout this unit is: How Does Soil Composition Impact Soil Fertility? Students got a chance to share their knowledge on soil composition before our discussion got started using a word cloud activity! You can tell a lot about the urban environment where students live based on some of their answers to these questions ie. “Organic Trash” (The words become bigger if more students reply with that word) Overall we are teaching these young people that cultivating Healthy Soil is essential to growing Healthy Food, which is the foundation of a Healthy Community!
Stay tuned for more updates from the Urban Ag Online Course!
