Soil Project (End of May to mid June)

4 pupils and staff brought in samples of soil from home. We will do a number of experiments on their soil.

(1) TO FIND HOW MUCH WATER WAS IN THE SOIL

(2) TO FIND THE DIFFERENT SOIL LAYES IN EACH SAMPLE

(4) TO FIND IF A SOIL SAMPLE HAS GOOD DRAINAGE

(5) TO FIND THE MINERALS IN A SOIL SAMPLE

(6) TO FIND THE Ph OF A SOIL SAMPLE

It will be great over the month to use loads of our scientific items from our science cupboard: funnels, filter paper, petra dishes, gradual cylinders and litmus paper.

We are also going to learn about the ph scale, the array of colours on it and how acidic/alkali a substance is.
