Investigating Soil

Today we had a look at soil.  We looked through it to see what we could see in the soil.

We wondered what would happen if we mixed soil with water and then let the water settle.

We found that when we mixed the soil with the water, the water looked muddy.

After letting it settle for a while we could see some leaves and little twigs floating on top of the not-so-muddy water, and that the heavy soil had sunk to the bottom of the jar.

This was very interesting to see!
