Armed with digging equipment your class will venture out into the Park to step back in time and see for themselves the layers of soil, mulch and leaf litter that builds up over 100s of years. They will find out about different components of soils and their importance as a natural resource. Through mud art, the properties of soils can be explored in a creative way. This day particularly encourages scientific investigation and connects rocks and soils to other important topics such as habitats, history and sustainability. Activities that can be included in your Rocks and Soils day:
Also at Cudmore:
Although available at many Essex Country Parks, Cudmore Grove is an especially great place for a Rock and soils day because of its coastal formations and the opportunity to hunt for fossils.
Key Stage 2. The day can be adapted to your class and curriculum. Just let us know your needs.
