Secrets of Soil

Our science inquiry this term is around soil.
We became interested in soil after our visit to the bush 
last term.

We had some questions ..
What is soil?
Is all soil the same?

We looked at some soil from the bush and some soil from school.
We mixed each soil with water. 

When it settled, we could see layers.
The school sample and the bush samples looked different to each other.

Soil from school

Soil from the bush floor

We  observed and drew the samples.

For homework, everyone gathered 3 soil samples from different areas at their home.

We will use these soil samples for some further experiments!

What is the soil like where you live?
