EO Kids is exploring the muddy waters of the Mississippi Delta. Follow the sediment as it travels down the river and discover how satellites help us find where the shoreline is shrinking and where it is gaining new ground. Plus, think like a scientist and see if you can solve the mystery of the disappearing delta wetland in this issue’s activity.

At EO Kids we are committed to making Earth science fun and engaging. Come explore Earth with us.
