We have moved on to our next objective: Explain how soil is related to its parent rock and home environment. We are starting this by dissecting a rather complex, but very good, article called "Water on Earth." You can find this article on the Assignments and Resources page. Students are to define the vocabulary words in the article for homework tonight and tomorrow. We will be discussing the article more in class tomorrow. Then, students will have to answer questions about the article for homework over the weekend.
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
