PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this unit, you will find 140 PAGES of soil inquiries, experiments, word work, vocabulary, review, practice, assessment/ pre-assessment, interactive mini-books, graphic organizers, writing prompts, a diorama & so much more! If you teach soil each year, this DIRT will keep things interesting and fresh each year because there is SO much material! Please download the preview to see the table of contents.

My Grade 2 students especially love the inquiries in this unit. SO. MUCH. FUN. ♥♥♥ They require very simple materials; soil, sand, rocks, hand lens, drinking straw, coffee filters, egg cartons, bean seeds. I have limited the required materials to make this unit accessible to as many teachers and students possible.

Activities have an introduction page with teacher instructions. Inquiries, crafts, and experiments all have photo documentation for quick scanning if you need an activity NOW!

►Components/properties of soil
