With the help of their science teacher, they learn about biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste and without knowing it, perform the steps of the scientific method, a skill necessary for scientists to make investigations. Although a skeptic to this process, Chantia is convinced after learning all there was to know about composting, that soil really can be made from trash. Together, Adrien and Chantia started the Clean up and Compost Campaign at their school. Included in this book are a number of activities to make composting fun such as a quiz, word puzzles, homework assignments, a garbage survey, a backyard exploration exercise and step-by-step instructions on how anyone can make their own magic soil. The goal of this book is to educate kids on their environment at school in a fun and interactive way that allows them to spread their knowledge and experiences to their community in fostering little stewards of the environment.
