This term we have been learning about all about rocks. We recently discovered that soil is made from rocks and organic matter. We used trowels to dig the soil from different locations in the school. The snow made it very cold but luckily we were wearing gloves.
We mixed the soil with water
“I know the samples of soil were all peat soil because because it was all very dark. If we looked at the soil from a different location such as a beach, I would expect it to be dry and sandy soil. To get a different result in the same place, we could have dug deeper” – Yusra
