Plant your Pants

Today we had a visit from Lizzie and James. They were soil scientists. They told us all about the different types of soil and why soil is important. We discovered all life on earth depends on soil. All our food comes either directly from soil, like tomatoes, or indirectly, like cheese. 


We explored different types of soil. We felt them and talked about how gritty they were and if we could make them into a ball. The different soils were sandy, peat and clay. 


Then we went out into the field and planted some pants! 

We wanted to see if the pants would be eaten by the different creatures that live in the soil. 


We planted the pants at different depths to see what will happen.
