We had a fascinating time learning all about the different types of rocks, how they are formed and classifying them according to their properties of permeability, hardness and ability to withstand erosion. Testing the rocks was great fun.
Soils have been our recent focus. We learnt that there are different types of soils and how soil is made from dead matter and ground down rocks. here are some photos of our recent soil experiment where we were finding out how different soils affect how quickly water drains through.
