- The growth and survival of living things are affected by physical conditions of their environment (ACSSU094)
- With guidance, pose clarifying questions and make predictions about scientific investigations (ACSIS232)
This resource is designed to increase students understanding of the importance of soil and its fundamental role in supporting plant and animal life. The activities lead students through a progression of investigations and simple experiments on how soils form, different soil types and how levels of nutrients, soil texture and soil pH affect the ability of soils to support plant growth and resist erosion.
