In this lesson plan, students use analysis techniques to learn about different types of soil and examine the relationship between plant growth and healthy soil. Links to resource materials, including videos, student handouts, and extension activities, are all included. Activities include student research and analysis of dry and moist soil features. Extension activities guide further learning through the examination of natural water filters and garden habitats. Lessons are correlated to Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.

In the Classroom

Take advantage of these hands-on investigative lessons to engage students in learning about types of soil. Have students document their learning by taking pictures and sharing videos of their investigations on your class website. Instead of printing student handouts, engage students by having them input information using mobile devices and classroom computers. Use a data visualization tool such as Chart Gizmo, reviewed here, to create customized graphs and charts. To create a customized learning unit for your students, use TES Teach Blendspace, reviewed here, to share websites, upload documents, and view videos all in one learning space.
