Product Description
This set of student worksheets will require 4 soil samples, approximately 1/2 cup each sample, 4 graduated cylinders, funnels and filter paper per group. You may do this as a guided demonstration as well. During this investigation I allowed my students to use primary level microscopes as an engage activity before continuing on to observe texture. You will also need 1 sealed container, like a jar, for the sediment jar activity. This activity requires that students gather soil samples from their own school yard. Each group can be in charge of filling their jar with soil from different locations. This adds to the discussion when comparing results.
