Joe Wright students go ‘underground’ in soil tunnel

TEXAS, Cherokee County SWCD — Fourth graders at Joe Wright Elementary went underground last week for an in-depth look at soil and its importance to our lives. A full-size inflatable soil tunnel provided by the Cherokee County Soil and Water Conservation District allowed students to learn about the Food Web, the Biology of Soil and life under the surface. The soil tunnel, approximately 12 foot long and 8 foot tall is a new educational resource which will be offered to county schools to allow teachers to lead students through a simulated underground tour of the soil. The goal of the soil tunnel is to teach the importance of conservation of soil as a natural resource by studying elements essential to soil health such as the Nitrogen Cycle, the Hydrologic Cycle, the Phosphorous Cycle, the Food Web and our connection to the land.
