Product Description
Student Internet investigation that explores the topic of soils. The lab utilizes websites from the NRCS (National Resources Conservation Service) and allows students to study soils and soil types in your area/region. Maps and interactive GIS data are featured as well as a new application called "SoilWeb" that works with Google Earth and GPS to determine local soil types by using computers and smart phones.
(I use this lab for my Advanced Placement Environmental Science class but it can also be used for non-AP studies as well.)

Topics/terms included in this lesson:
soils
soil types
soil quality
soil health
soil surveys
