Over the past 2 days students have had a chance to investigate four different soil samples. They took time to use magnifying glasses to observe closely and record with drawings and words.
Then we came together to share the words we used to describe the samples and students had the opportunity to add more to their own recording sheet.
After that we looked at 4 location pictures and completed a shared writing activity, listing words to describe each location and deciding on a name for each.
The last step was to decide where each soil sample came from. Students used their knowledge of writing complete sentences using the conjunction “because” to record their thoughts.
