Get the Dirt on Soil is a science PBL that is designed to get kids interested in the ground they walk on! Great for getting teachers involved with the design engineering process for the first time, or introducing the scientific principles of earth science to students, this multimedia lesson plan will run 2-4 weeks and really get your kids interested in learning! Using the 7E system for full student comprehension, this packet contains everything you need (besides an imagination!) to engage with your students and have a blast while teaching them the principles of soil composition, water retention, and other scientific principals. A fully-detailed run-down of the activities, materials, and processes are given, along with all the referenced worksheets, and hand-outs, and a blank planning calendar for your activities. Everything is shown step-by-step, along with all of the teaching standards addressed and the lesson vocabulary to ensure everything runs smoothly.
