Our class took a look at soil. Each student brought in soil from somewhere close to their house. We talked about the different types of soil, why we need it, and where we find soil. The students had their own soil information book that they filled out. Students wrote about how their soil felt, smelt and what they saw in their soil. Then we took a closer look at our soil using magnifying glasses. At the end of the week when we were all done learning about soil we went outside and put the soil where soil belongs.
