I was amazed by the amount of knowledge the students showed in the video
presentation today. I am not sure that my middle-level students would be
that articulate with their understanding of Earth processes. I found myself
wondering where this great knowledge came from. I thought about the
possibility that as students grow older and have more experiences (TV,
science fiction movies, peer interactions, bad science teachers, etc.) that
their prior knowledge has a greater potential to be filled with
misinformation. I think soil is a fun start. We can all go back to a time
of digging in the “dirt” or at least the sand, or helping someone planting
a garden. I did the comparison of two soil types with my students this
year. It was very open-ended and it was a great experience where the kids
where open to exploring and using observation skills. I want to add the
core sampler to my classroom toolbox. Anyone have any suggestions on where
to get a good one? -Heather
