The WAGGGS/FAO Soils Challenge is designed to help educate children and young people about the crucial role that soils play for life on our planet. It is aimed at children 5-16. It is divided into four parts and your unit must complete at least two activities in each section to complete the challenge:
A. all about soils: explains how soil is formed, what it contains, and the biodiversity found within it.
B. soil uses: describes the myriad ways in which soil supports life on Earth.
C. soil at risk: explains the various factors causing soil degradation.
D. TAKE ACTION: provides tangible ideas for helping to conserve soil and manage it sustainable.
Badges are available from the WAGGGS Shop.
The UN badges are very detailed and may be a great option for a girl who needs more challenge or as a year long theme for your unit.
