Physical Features of Soil: Advanced Crop and Soil Science. A Course of Study.
Miller, Larry E.
The course of study represents the second of six modules in advanced crop and soil science and introduces the agriculture student to the subject of physical features of the soil. Upon completing the two day lesson, the student will be able to determine the texture and structural types of soil, list the structural classes of the soil and where they are found in the profile, discuss the influence soil texture and structure have on the physical features of the soil, and calculate bulk and particle density. The course outline suggests teaching procedures, behavioral objectives, teaching aids and references, problems, summary, and evaluation. Following the lesson plans, pages are coded for use as handouts and overhead transparencies. A materials source list for the complete soil module is included. (MW)
