This is a slide show set of 29 slides to use as I teach a unit on Soil. It was created as a PDF file that I display on my Smartboard and use my Smartboard Tools with so that I can highlight and write on the slides as needed. It works through key concepts about soil using text and pictures or photographs. It covers the answers to such questions as:
What is soil?
How is soil made?
Why is soil important?
What are different types of soil?
What are soil horizons?
How can we protect soil?
I use these slides in conjunction with my SOIL Investigations and Experiments File in order to provide students with both visual and hands on learning experiences.

to see how I use these with my students.
