Discover fascinating facts about yourself, plants and animals, the air you breathe, the water you drink, the earth you walk on, and the sun that gives you energy. In this collection of fun-filled activities, you will find out how to: measure the air pollution in your area; create a forest ecosystem; make recycled paper; make your own "green" cleaners; build a worm composter; and become a kitchen sleuth, finding out where food comes from. Whether you are cooking a delicious veggie chilli, making your own soil, or creating a mini oil spill, you'll find out more about the world you live in and how to make it better.
