A - Scientific Saturdays: Layers of Earth Projects and Earth Science Power Points (maybe integrate Leo Geo for younger grades, maybe make layers of earth cake or cake balls to reward students for hard work)
I gave him a rectangle of property. Each play dough color represents a type of soil or rock. Where should he build a house? Where should he dig a well? He must use "core sampling" to determine the answers.
Inside out Playdough Earth - Part of hands on homeschool Earth Science unit. Also love the taking a core sample idea! This could be used in a few different grades but could be good for a grade Earth Layer activity.
You do layers of the earth right! I hope you're ready for great week ahead! Today we hit the ground running with a very detailed foldable about the layers of the Earth. Students knocked this one out of the ball park!
This site provides an idea and an example of an experiment that helps students learn about erosion and the different types of soil or rock and how they interact with other elements in nature. A flip chart and worksheet packet is sold by TPT.
Possible school experiment to show importance of wetlands/riparian zones! This shows the importance of plants in our soil. Plants like trees and grasses help purify ground water. Without them the ground water gets polluted and harder to clean and drink.
