This week the girls of Wooten Elementary explored soil and its properties. First the girls made observations as they placed clumps of soil into a cup of water to learn about soil composition. Then in small groups they explored the texture, color, and sediment structure of five different types of soil: silt, clay, natural dirt, sand, and garden soil. Next the girls used their observations to discuss different scientists that study soil for their work and research. Check out those soil scientists!
