Summary:Learn all about soil composition -- from the big picture breakdown (water, air, mineral, and organic matter) to the main soil groups (sand, silt and clay) and the six soil types and their characteristics. Discover the differences in soil type through touch and feel, and by checking the component percentages against a soil triangle. Do an experiment to uncover some of the creatures that make up rich soil ecosystems and zoom in on the microscopic life under our feet.
