PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Soil sampling profile activity.
Notes,write up guide, & 10 page vocabulary powerpoint
Vocab words on the powerpoint include
Soil profile
Soil horizon
Organic material
humus
topsoil
subsoil
parent material

Students will copy the vocab words using the powerpoint. 10-15min
Next they watch a short video clip on how to sample soil
I use soil probes for my sampling (however other methods can be used) you could also provide soil in the room to do this.

Students collect soil samples and follow the guide sheet to answer some questions about the soils characteristics.

Then they draw and label a detailed diagram of their soil profile using cm to measure each horizon.

PREVIEW IS OF PAGE 2 on the sheet

As a follow up activity I had my students make a mini soil profile using an index card and double sided tape that they had to label.

So many possibilities for this one. The sampling could also be done as a take home project.
