Types By Texture

Students 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.
