Soil erosion can be caused by water or wind. Although undetectable at first, the natural process of erosion from water and wind can lead to significant soil losses from agricultural and urbanizing land. In this section, students simulate rain and wind to observe the effects of water and wind erosion on soil, they learn how people in the community work to conserve natural resources, and with adults' help, students inventory the school site, develop plans, then create a garden.
