Easy Soil Activity

This activity was so easy and yet my students were so engaged doing it.  Sometimes it surprises me how much they get into an activity that I thought was so, so... Anyway, we first took a walk around the playground to notice what types of soil we could find.  We spotted sandy soil near the track, rich soil around the bushes, and of course since we live in Ga., we found red clay. Once inside (and after a quick discussion about certain plant needs), I gave each student a piece of paper folded to make three spaces.  They labeled and drew the types of soil we saw and what might grow in them.
