Bay-Friendly Student Action Project
5th and 6th Grade Sheet Mulching Action Project
Sheet mulching is a layered mulch system that can be used to suppress weeds, build healthy soil and replace lawns. Through scientific investigations, students apply their science knowledge, to create a healthy landscape model for their school through sheet mulching.
In this project, students also take action by:
- sheet mulching a designated area at their school
- conducting research and collecting data
- applying what they have learned by doing educational outreach at home, at school, and their community to protect the Earth’s resources and environment
