Week of February 15th

This week’s learning targets in science:

  • Describe the components of soil and other factors that influence soil texture, fertility, and resistance to erosion.
  • Analyze the ways humans affect the erosion and deposition of soil and rock materials (e.g. clearing of land, planting vegetation, paving land, construction of new buildings, building or removal of dams) and propose possible solutions.

Thank you so much to all the families who sent in supplies for our soil horizon edible lab. The kids really learned a lot about the composition of each soil layer!

Homeroom Announcements:

  • Be sure to turn in scheduling forms. They need to be signed by a parent.
