Mighty Mole and Super Soil

Mary Quattlebaum

Categories: Animals , Insects , Soils

Resource Description

Below your feet, Mighty Mole is on the move. Like a swimmer in dirt, she strokes through the soil. Her tunnels are everywhere! She finds food, eludes a predator, has a family, and helps to make Super Soil. Moles live almost everywhere yet are rarely seen. Similarly, soil is a largely invisible ecosystem and yet is vital to the health of the world. Following the story, two Explore More for Kids pages offer a matching challenge and a review of some of the remarkable traits that make moles “mighty.” Two additional pages of Explore More for Teachers and Parents offers activities in visual and language arts, science, technology, and math. This book needs to be returned.
