Getting to Know Soil

Getting to Know Soil

Rating
0.0 stars

Students will ask questions and make observations about soil to learn about properties of different types of soil and soil horizons. Students collect soil samples, use their senses to observe the samples, and mix them with water to observe how the soils settle. Three reproducible student recording sheets are included with this lesson.

Making a Sundial

Rating
0.0 stars

Students will construct a sundial and use it to observe the movement of the sun through the sky over the course of a day by marking changes in the position of a shadow once each hour. Students determine the approximate time of solar noon at their school as indicated by the time of the shortest shadow. Students revisit the site on a subsequent day to estimate the time of day using their sundial.
