Oh my goodness...I am in LOVE with this experiment idea!!!!! I can't wait until Earth Day and our Lorax unit!!!! :-)

Possible school experiment to show importance of wetlands/riparian zones! This shows the importance of plants in our soil. Plants like trees and grasses help purify ground water. Without them the ground water gets polluted and harder to clean and drink.

Soil conservation techniques for hillside farms: Traditional Honduran hill side farming techniques and resulting problems

Soil conservation techniques for hillside farms: Soil conservation strategies: Strategies in cultivation systems characterized by extensive soil disturbance: Terraces (individual, discontinuous narrow, and continuous bench terraces)

Students get about soil conservation learning about the dust bowl, then design a farm using soil conservation measures. Students learn about contour plowing, crop rotation, alley cropping, wind breaks, increasing fertility, and much more. Built-in quizzes, video links, and much more are provided. Enjoy!

My oldest son (8-years old when I wrote this Instructable) is in Cub Scouts. As part of one of the requirements we were trying to fulfill, our Wolf/Bear Den (combined meeting) performed Elective 15, Water and Soil Conservation, to earn an arrow. (This is all part of the Cub Scout Bear handbook, shown in one of the photos in this step.) This Instructable shows how our Wolf (and Bear) Den met Requirement 15 (b) Conduct a soil experiment, and (d) found out what erosion is and what kinds of…
