U.S. Customs and Border Protection: Soil Lesson

U.S. Customs and Border Protection teach Del Valle Elem. students on the importance of soil


On Thursday, December 14th, Del Valle Elementary (K-5) students were treated to a presentation by CBP Agricultural Specialist Grady Carlile and CBP Agricultural Specialist Erik Sepulveda on the importance of soil.

Students viewed a power point presentation with a hands-on activity shortly after. Through the activity students were where able to analyze various components of soil under a microscope as well as see its impact in the ‘real world.’ Students were provided with various activities that needed to be completed as an exit ticket that would then be included in their ISN.

Specialist Carlile and Sepulveda created a friendly, informative atmosphere that heightened the students interest on this particular topic.
