Activity #2: Determine Soil Particle Size
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson, students determine the particle size and composition of a sample of soil. Soil composition determines many characteristics of soils, such as infiltration rates (the rate at which water moves into a soil), percolation rates (how fast water moves through the soil), settling rates (how fast sediments sink to the bottom of a body of water), oxygen content, and the ability of the soil to support plant and animal life.

Density and Texture of Soil
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

Students demonstrate the difference in soil textures and how this difference relates to soil density. DIfferences in the proportion of soil components are what determine soil texture, which also affect soil properties. Students will also understand other factors such as compaction that affect soil density.

Field Research: Discovering the Structure of Soil
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In this two-part lesson, students learn about soil structure and its organic matter content. In the first activity, students carry out a simple experiment to collect soil samples and test their stability to learn which types of soil are liekly to be more prone to erosion. In the second activity, students find out about the mineral composition of soil samples.

In this lab activity, students will investigate particle sorting and deposition. Students will combine gravel, sand, clay, and potting soil in a 2L bottle, add water, shake the contents, and allow the water to evaporate. Once the sediments have settled and dried, students will cut the bottle in half and obseve the cross section. Students will make observations with a small group and record observations in their science journals.
