“Essentially, all life depends upon the soil … There can be no life without soil and no soil without life; they have evolved together.” – Charles E. Kellogg
Soil is a very important resource, essential for life. It is a medium for plants to grow, allows exchange of gas between land and air, provides habitat for most of the organisms on Earth, holds clean water, recycle nutrients and is used for constructing structures.
To understand the importance of soil, students of Class V collected different materials from the surrounding like twigs, pebbles, mud, sand etc and arranged it in layers like soil. They used waste plastic bottles as a container.
They connected themselves to the soil and explained, how soil is essential for life of plants, animals, humans and even micro organisms. They also explained that how soil acts as the filtration system for surface water.
