Dirt Fourth Grade Program

This program gets students hands dirty with one of our most important natural resources, soil. Students will rotate through a series of stations demonstrating the biological, chemical and physical means by which rocks become part of soil. Then they hike to observe local landforms and how the Big Elk Creek and its tributaries have helped shaped the landscape of Fair Hill. The students also see first hand how people impact the land and how through various practices they can help prevent soil erosion.
