soil samples

This is a great kit for teaching students about soil textures. The soils samples are intended for students who are doing a texture analysis by feel and appearance. The kit includes two cups of sand, two cups of silt loam, and two cups clay. All of the soil samples are from the state of Utah and are representative of the Intermountain Region, although the mineral content may be different, the particle sizes are true to soil texture type and can be used by other states for demonstration purposes.

Contextualize the soil samples with the soils lessons found on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix

    Excellent Product

    I was very pleased with this product! My students were very engaged and thrilled to be touching actual soil as a science lesson. It was plenty for a class of 21 to each have a little sample, enough to even test adding water to each. The shipping time was also efficient.

    Great Samples

    My class used these soil samples to discuss soil characteristics and properties. They were great. I especially loved the clay since it is difficult to get at any local store.
