I created this soil profile coloring page for my fourth grade classroom.
I use the labeled activity page to teach about the different layers of soil. As a class we read about the different layers. Students draw and color in each layer of soil as it is described. I use the page which is not labeled as a quiz on another day. I expect each student to be able to label each layer, describe the characteristics of each layer, and draw out each layer.
I use the vocabulary words in my Science Word Wall for students to refer to throughout the year.
