Soil Dissection

soil dissection lab

We got our hands dirty doing a soil dissection lab!  By looking closely at soil, we discovered its basic recipe:

- small rock/mineral pieces
- organic material
- water
- air

Regional ingredients are added to this recipe to create the many unique soils found around the world.  Here is a copy of the Soil Taxonomy poster we have at our science shelf showing major soils found on planet Earth.
