Dig In – what’s in the dirt?
We went with some cousins to the Powder Valley Conservation Center for an educational program about digging in the dirt.
After a presentation about what you might find living in the dirt (beetles, worms, spiders,etc…) the kids were given toolboxes filled with supplies.
There were shovels, bug catching containers, and magnifying glasses.
We walked down the path to an outside classroom where the kids got down and dirty digging in the soil.
Then there was a show-and-tell where the kids got to show what they caught before letting them go.
It was an easy activity that the kids loved! It will be easy to replicate this hands on experience!!
Make your own:
- A box with a handle
- Hand shovel
- Jar with lid (and air holes)
- Magnifying glass
