Investigating soil layers

30th November 2017

In Year 3 we have started our topic all about rocks. We learned that rocks help to make up the layers of soil under the ground. We investigated the soil layers by making our own yummy layers! We used hardened chocolate to represent bedrock, crushed digestives and M and Ms for rocky soil, grated milk chocolate for the clay layer, crushed digestives for the subsoil and flaked dark chocolate for the topsoil. Finally we used green sprinkles to represent the grass!
