The Resource beneath Our Feet

Science Teacher, v82 n6 p49-56 Sep 2015
This article describes activities in which students sample, investigate, classify, and compare characteristics (i.e., texture, color, density, porosity) of local soils, evaluating whether the soils are healthy or at risk. Students investigate correlations between geology and geography, predict which soil types may go extinct in their state, and analyze how this will affect people.
