NASA Learning Objects: Soil Science Education Page

CDE Standards for Grade 2 (EARTH SCIENCE 3C) stipulates that students should know that soil is made partly from weathered rock and partly from organic materials and that soils differ in their color, texture, capacity to retain water, and ability to support the growth of many kinds of plants. 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. Great information for an anticipatory set and a resource for teachers as well. This will need to be navigated by teacher as it is possibly too advanced for 2nd graders. Enjoy!
