Our Soil "Recipe":
Bedrock Layer: Coco Puffs
Subsoil Layer: Pudding
Topsoil Layer: Oreo Cookies (Crumbled)
In Science, we are using Science Notebooks, so we added our line of learning, and then students wrote a reflection piece on what they learned during our "making soil".
They LOVED this activity and all that we did with Soil. They actually did really well on their assessment which had me very pleased since they were used to assessments in the past being open book and not having to "learn the information"; only locate the information.
