|Thank you for sharing some great ideas on teaching about soil.
Another one I have used is painting with soil.
Collect several different soil samples from travels or trading by mail. For each sample, leave some in its original state to examine. take the rest and crush/grind it as fine as you cn then mix it with just enough water to create the soil paint. Give students heavy watercolor paper and paint brushes and allow them to create a painting using the different soils Ask them, what makes the soil different colors and textures? Let them look up information about what is in soil. note- Georgia red clay is one of the favorite colors due to the iron oxide
This is a fun way to get them exploring and they make an art piece to take home.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!
