Soil cocktails, anyone?

Year 4 have been investigating different types of soil. We discovered differences between sandy, loam and clay soils.


We also planned an investigation into how fast water will flow through the different types of soil. To make the test fair we used the same amount of soil, water and measures. Next we timed how long it took for the water to flow through the soil.


We discovered that water flows the quickest through loam and clay. Sand absorbs water really well.
