Spring Homeschool: Soil Science
Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary's spring homeschool series will allow students to experience nature through an ongoing project. During our first class, we will plant a variety of seeds and then monitor their growth over the next six weeks. At the end of our session, we will transplant the seeds into one of the sanctuary gardens and students will be able to visit their plants whenever they want. In this session we will focus on the Science of Soil.
Without soil, life as we know it would cease to exist. We will spend the morning exploring various habitats on the sanctuary where we will use a variety of tools to become soil scientists! We will learn what soil is made of and plant seeds in different types of soils to see what soils are best for growing plants.
