This section introduces students to the animals that depend on soil. In addition to studying the animals students can see, introduce them to Earth's vast invisible life—the billions of microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, protozoa, fungi, and algae, which inhabit and enrich the soil. In this section, students will learn the soil habitat that animals make home, learn about food chains and how humans fit into such chains, and they will learn how worms eat, where they live, and how they help the environment.
