Throughout this module, students will use hands-on, inquiry-based explorations to investigate:

  • the kinds of materials in soil.
  • the arrangement of soil materials.
  • the amount of water the soil can hold.
  • how water flows through soil.
  • how soil is eroded.

Use the navigation on the left to explore resources that will be useful for the investigations.
