Introduction to Soil Kit

SCIENTIFIC CONCEPTS / PROCESSES

  • One way to gather data is through direct observation. Accurate and complete observations are important for making conclusions about the natural world
  • Soil consists of weathered rocks and decomposed organic material from dead plants, animals, and bacteria

In this elementary school kit, students observe several different earth materials with a magnifying lens and describe what they see. Their observations, including metric measurements, are used to help them understand how these materials are classified and identified. Students then apply the skills and understanding developed in the first activity to observe and describe soil samples completely enough to be identified by someone else. These observations and descriptions form the basis for agreeing upon a definition for soil.
