Students observe and measure properties such as water-holding capacity, ion-exchange capacity, macronutrient content, and particle-size distribution to determine which types soil are the most productive for growing plants. Students then test their hypothesis by planting alfalfa to track success. The materials in the kit are sufficient for 32 students working in groups of 4.
Exploring different characteristics of soil provides insight into how productive it might be for farming purposes. Students conduct experiments on different types of soil to observe and measure properties such as water-holding capacity, ion-exchange capacity, macronutrient content, and particle-size distribution to determine which types soil are the most productive for growing plants. Students then test their hypothesis by planting alfalfa to track success.
The materials in the kit are sufficient for 32 students working in groups of 4. Digital teacher’s manual, included FREE with kit purchase, is a 12-month eBook license to the Soil Productivity Teacher’s Manual and Student Guide.
