Yesterday the grade three class went to the outdoor classroom to search for different types of soil. We found sandy soil and garden soil (humus, loam). After we collected it we brought it inside to begin to investigate what it has in it, what it smells like, what it feels like and what happens to it when we add water to it. Thank you to one of our class mates for bringing in clay soil for us to look at, as we could not find any around the school. We will keep you updated on what we learn about soil as we continue to investigate.
