Soil experiment

Several times a week we have Science.  Every couple of weeks the children participate in a lab/ experiment and it is their favorite part of Science.  We started today's lab with a PowerPoint showing different types of soil in our area.  Mrs. Ruark showed the children where she had been to collect rocks, clay, sand and humus.

Next the children helped her add each of the types of soil to make a soil milkshake. 

Add a little water and then... shake, shake shake it up!
The children then went to their Science Journals to predict what they think will happen to the soil if we leave it to set overnight. 

How do you think the soil will settle?
