Ready to get your hands dirty? In this BrainPOP UK movie, Tim and Moby will teach you what it is that makes soil good for growing things, how dead plants help other plants grow, how roots can actually break up rock, and the difference between weathering and erosion. In this educational, animated movie you’ll learn about the three main layers of soil, what soil is made up of, and what happens when you finally hit bedrock. (Forget Australia - you’ve come to the end of your digging!)
