Plant and Soil Science: Soil Properties

Soil Properties: HS.56 : Appreciating Differences in People (1,2,IA) (PDF) | (PPT)

Discuss the correlation between the diversity of the layers within a soil profile and how all are needed for their attributes to the need for diversity within communities to have a well rounded society.

Soil Properties: MS.31 : Types of Relationships (1,2) (PDF) | (PPT)

During a discussion on soil textures, structure, or types discuss what relationship the different types of soil have in common or not. Compare this to the student body, why do some groups get along with some groups but not others. Relate this back to why diversity (loam) is more beneficial then a single component (sand).
