Reflection: Cycles of Inquiry Let's Soil It - Section 3: Explore


In exploring the soil, the students had an opportunity to observe what was inside the soil. The topsoil came from one of my student's grandfather's garden and the clay soil came from Yard Work, a business that sells soil. In exploring the topsoil, the students observe dead worms and plants within the soil. The donated soil gave them a clear understand what could be found in soil.

Teacher's note: If you do this lesson, it would be a great idea to get donated soil from a garden or a business that sells soil.
