Earth Science - Rocks and Soil

November 11, 2013

The middle level ELL Academy students are currently completing an Earth science unit about Rocks and Soil.  They have completed several labs to further understand and promote language acquisition related to science concepts.  The most recent lab completed involved soil.  Students used the scientific process to ask a question, form a hypothesis, conduct an experiment, and analyze data to determine how much water different types of soil hold.  They finished this lab activity by using the data they acquired to determine what type of soil is the best for growing plants and using their acquired English to explain how they came to this conclusion.
