Summer Soil Scoop

In this activity, students will study the texture of soil by doing an experiment using soil samples found nearby, a jar or other clear container, and water. After learning what makes soil special and the makeup of soil, students will use an activity sheet and their materials to carry out the experiment and take note of their results. Finally, students are encouraged to perform the experiment as many times as they’d like, using soil samples collected from different locations throughout the summer and comparing them to one another.
