Fun with the Plant Nutrient Team
(Recommended for Grades K-1 and 2-3)
Humans, animals, and plants all depend on the soil for life. Without soil, we could not grow the food we eat. There would be no place to hold and store the water we drink. There would be no place for us to build our houses, roads, schools and cities.
Caring for the soil is important to our lives. As the world population increases and more food is needed to feed all the people, knowing what is best for the soil, what is best for the plants, and what is best for the world around us is a necessary part of everyone's education.
Just like people, plants require nutrients to be healthy. When some nutrients are missing, plants do not grow well. Farmers work hard to add just what is needed to grow their crops.
Our Fun with the Plant Nutrient Team activity books (Book 1 Grades K-1 and Book 2 Grades 2-3) were written to help children better understand what the soil needs to be healthy in order to provide us with healthy foods.
