soils are composed of small particles of rock (sand and clay) and humus
soils contain nutrients necessary for plants to grow
soils have differing capacity to hold water depending on composition
soil can be moved (eroded) by the action of wind, liquid water, and ice
water cycles through precipitation, evaporation, and condensation
the rate of evaporation of water from soils is determined by factors such as temperature, surface area, and
evaporated water is a gas that becomes part of the air
the evaporated water carried in air condenses into liquid water when the air is cooled
air has mass and can push on things when it moves
living things depend on water, air, and soil (either directly or indirectly)
