Soil Painting

Grades 3-5 (Kit) 

This kit includes five Utah soils that have been finely ground and sifted. Each soil is labeled with the name of the Utah county from which it was collected, the soil type and order, and the color of the soil classified by hue, value, and chroma. Use this kit with the Color in the Garden lesson plan, which uses painting with soil-based pigments to help students understand soils.

Lesson plans associated with this kit can be found on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix.

    Engaging for kids

    This was easy to use with diluted glue and kids enjoyed knowing they were painting with soil- even though we are in NH, we could find connections between the soil types here and in Utah

    Great Resource to bring relevant uses of soil to students! My students were amazed that you could use soil to paint with! Our class painted a soil horizon profile using these soils paints! Turned out great!
