Soil Activity Kit is a fun, interactive way for students to learn, while integrating science and ELA! Make learning without a textbook motivating and exciting for students!
Included in this kit you will find:
-Soil Menu (keeps students’ independent learning focused with 6 activity choices)
-Soil Pamphlet (copy back to back to create pamphlet for recording research)
-Soil Slideshow (research and slideshow presentation directions)
-Soil Advertisement (soil protection)
-Soil Art (plan and design an art project related to potential soil horizons)
-Soil Booklet (soil horizons tab book)
-Soil Research Journal
Prep for the kit is easy: print and copy activity sheets and activity direction cards. Place books (from your library), copies, direction cards and any additional materials (art supplies) in a bin or a bag for student access. I recommend having different types of soil for students to touch and experiment with (best with the Soil Research Journal). Students can work independently or in small groups for science/ELA enrichment! One kit can last one week, or throughout the duration of your unit, depending on how much time you have. You may also use these projects as extensions for students who want to learn more independently. Each activity can also be implemented as a whole group project.
These activities are interactive and will keep students engaged in learning about Earth’s soil!
