this unit students learn about basic soil science, and then explore
some unique characteristics of soils found in urban areas. The materials
provided here include a basic outline of the unit and a few protocols
(for example, "testing porosity," and "compaction").
When this unit was used with students, it also included a variety
of laboratory handouts, a PowerPoint presentation, and field trips.
