Layers of Soil

We all have played outside on the grass, and have seen how underneath it all there is soil. But is it the same soil all the way down? Or does it change? Let's watch this video and find out! Educational Video

Draw the Layers

You can draw and color the layers of soil, and then you can label them too. If you are writing here are some other names for each layer of soil:

  • O Horizon and A Horizon = Organic

  • E Horizon = top soil

  • B Horizon = Subsoil

  • C Horizon = Parent Material

  • R Horizon = Bed Rock

The Nutrient Cycle

Can you draw the nutrient cycle? I chose to cut paper and paste mine, so that's another option for you! If you're writing, can you label the cycle too?
