Each student will make predictions about the properties of various soil samples. Then they will examine several types of soils and record their observations. Next, they will learn about soil profiles and horizons by both examining a soil sample in a jar and by creating a soil profile flip chart. Uses commonly available or inexpensive materials (e.g., soil samples, mesh wire strainers,tweezers, toothpicks ... Full description.
