Testing soil composition is a classic experiment in earth science classrooms. Use this soil analysis kit to teach students how to conduct soil composition tests. They'll also learn how to collect and evaluate local soil samples.
By bringing in local soil samples, students forge a stronger connection to their environment. Test results will be more meaningful, since they're tied to their own backyards! Plus, kids will build a knowledge base that they can apply to any other environment.
This Soil Analysis Kit from Innovating science has enough material for 5 groups. Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
You provide test tubes, test tube rack, test tube tongs, water, uv light, disposable pipets, oven, paper, balance, marker. A microscope is optional.
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Phenolphthalein, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer, and Methanol, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
