"The Soil Around Us" Project

Young geographers collect samples of different kinds of soil to match to the soil terms in Barry Rudner's rhyming book Filet of Soil: dirt, mud, dust, soot, etc. They start a glossary for the project on index cards or large sheets of paper and post them in the hall for others to see! Invite a younger class to the hall to hear verbal presentations of the cards! Special treat: Follow the links to inspiring community-building activities, discussion builders.

Lesson Planet has been one of the primary ingredients for the mortar I need in order to successfully provide a positive learning environment for my students. It saves me the effort of weeding through the abyss of internet resources available and provides quality resources from qualified and experienced teachers. Thank You!!!
