Discussion for NASA RESOURCE DRIVEN INSTRUCTION: SOIL SCIENCE EDUCATION
Kymberlee Advani (Student)
This site does a great job introducing and discussing soil and its makeup. This site is interactive and even has a "soil of the month" section.I felt this website was educational for students. It introduces different ideas for lesson since there is a lot of information about soil. The website offers different activities teachers can do with their students. I really liked how the website even demonstrated questions to ask students when teaching about soil. My favorite activity was, How Much Soil is There. It shows students how much soil there is on Earth by having an apple be earth. The apple is being cut down until it demonstrates the percentage of soil on Earth.
The website was easy to get around. The website offered subtopics on the left side. It was organized.
