Teaching Kids the Importance of Preventing Soil Erosion
Soil is something that almost everyone takes for granted. It is vital to humankind and preserving it is our duty. Therefore it is important that we, as responsible adults, teach kids the value of soil conservation.
Because soil erosion is such an important issue to farmers, any practice that will help prevent water run off or helps to maintain the strength of the soil structure will be beneficial.
These are primary five and six children learning different methods of soil conservation at Ahazaza farm. This will help children developing cognitive intelligence relating to sustainable environment.
In this field study, pupils have studied the main ways of soil prevention such as planting more trees and shrubs, terracing, mulching and digging ditches.
Caring for the soil is crucial for the long-term viability of our gardens and forests. Therefore it is important that our children get sensitised to the soil erosion problems as this is one of the best ways to protect the environment.
