Learn to build a worm composter, create a forest ecosystem, make your own soil and find out where the food in your kitchen comes from.
These 48 activities are designed to stimulate understanding, knowledge, and appreciation of our ecosystem. They are organized into five chapters: "A Breath of Fresh Air," "Waterworks," "Earthborn," "All Fired Up," and "Our Fine Feathered (and Leafy) Friends." A two-page explanatory overview precedes each section. Activities include making a solar water heater, paper, a composter can, and natural cleansers. Each project has a list of supplies needed, step-by-step instructions, and an explanation of what's going on. Illustrations enhance the lively text, which can be used in the classroom or at home.
