Discover the conditions that caused your local soils to form! Students will examine common soils of North America, determine how soils are formed, and create a sample soil profile using the provided soil horizon cards. They’ll analyze the soils in the profile and describe the environmental conditions that influenced their formation. Students can also gather local soils, create a profile, and determine the environmental changes that caused those soils to form. Easy-to-use, portable, and practical soil cards allow students to construct a soil profile in the field and then analyze it when they get back to the lab - with far less mess than using core samples. Enough materials for 40 students. Grades 7-10.
