Soil Experiments

We have done a few more experiments with our soil samples. Last Friday we took a look at how the different types of soil allowed water to drain through them. This led to a discussion about how some types of soil are better for gardening than others. Earlier this week we looked at how soil can actually filter impurities from water. This time we poured colored water (colored with Kool-Aid) through our samples to see which sample would filter out more impurities. We were all surprised that "dirt" can actually clean water.
