“The Hidden Life of Soils” card game!

There’s a new card game that shows the connections between Macrofauna, Microfauna, Megafauna, Mesofauna, Plants and Soil, and it looks like a LOT of fun!

Ok, so the macrofauna can be a little… “icky”, but I don’t think kids will care as much as most adults will. (Remember the sand worms from the movie Beetlejuice? Yeah.)

And if you’ve ever seen a tardigrade, you know they kinda look like little eye-less manatees with a “truncated” trunk. (oh look, a pun!)

Tardigrade

Awww… he’s actually kinda cute.

It also brings in heavy hitters from the scientific community, including The Microscope, The Auger, Charles Darwin and Peter E. Muller.

It’s like a reunion concert without the drama or high ticket prices.

They’re free, so print the PDF now! Hidden Life of Soils card game.
