Life in a Bucket of Soil

This fascinating 96-page book can be used to introduce older grade school students to industrious ants, tunnel-building earthworms, snails and slugs, beetles, and many other creatures inhabiting the world beneath our feet. The book provides vivid descriptions of how soil organisms live, breed and interact; their methods of locomotion, feeding and defense; and the effect they have on the soil in which they live.
