Soil prepared ready for seeding

In this hands on activity, students examine what happens to different types of soil when mixed with water. Next, students explore the components of soil (sand, silt, and clay) and examine how these particles effect water retention and air space in the soil. Developed by National Ag in the Classroom, this grade 9-12 resource is linked to curriculum outcomes.
