The soil beneath your feet all looks the same, doesn’t it? Surprisingly, soils in different locations actually have different components. In this science project, you can examine the layers that make up various soil samples and think about why the samples are so different from each other.
All soils are made of four components: clay, loam, sand, and silt. This science project identifies the differences between soils from different environments and attempts to figure out why those differences exist.
