Types By Texture

Young scholars investigate soil types by texturing soil samples and determining the different soil types. They conduct a dirt shake activity, determining the amount of silt in a quart jar filled with dirt and water. Students then answer discussion questions, complete a soil texture by feel activity, and complete a worksheet.

I was looking for some creative ways to introduce my students to Hawaiian music and the culture of Hawaii in the elementary music classroom. Lesson planet.com provided a wealth of helpful and fun resources for me to use in my classroom.
