In this field activity, students learn about the five soil-forming factors and their influence on soil properties such as moisture, temperature, color and texture. They identify factors such as slope, shade, plants and compaction, and investigate how these factors affect the a soil's appearance and moisture holding ability. This is a learning activity associated with the GLOBE soil investigations ... Full description.

In this hands-on activity, students create a model soil profile in a two-liter beverage bottle, time the movement of water through different soils and observe the amount of water held in these soils. They observe the filtering ability of soils by noting the clarity of the water before and after it passes through the soil. The activity is supported by a student data sheet. This is a learning activity ... Full description.
