|Constructing a Set of Soil Sieves|
In this activity, students will construct a set of sieves (four sizes) and use them to sort a soil sample. The activity will demonstrate that accuracy does not always have to involve expensive, high technology equipment. The sieves can be kept for use in later activities. A materials list and illustrated instructions are provided. Materials used to construct the sieves must be purchased.
