I encourage you all to share with your students as a home activity if time allows.
This tidbit of guidance might give a few kiddos a little direction…

To the farmer, soil is where crops grow.
To the engineer, soil is a foundation upon which to build.
To the ecologist, soil supports communities of living things.
To the archaeologist, soil holds clues to past cultures.
To the city dweller, soil nurtures grass and gardens.

To the soil scientist, soil is all of these things. 

Soil has been called "the skin of the earth" because it is the thin outermost layer of the Earth's crust.
Like our own skin, we can't live without soil.”
