Physical and Chemical Properties of Soil (ASC2.4 ) PBL Project

Essential Question: How can soil fertility be impacted by the physical and chemical properties of soil? This project exposes students to the physical and chemical properties that impact soil fertility. Students learn the importance of plant nutrients and basic signs of nutrient deficiencies. Students investigate the role of the atom in plant production, by gaining knowledge in ions and their role in cation exchange capacity and subsequent impact on nutrient availability in soil. At the conclusion of this project students will be able to evaluate soil samples in various ways to predict soil fertility. Students will be able to propose strategies to increase soil fertility, and will actually have the opportunity to increase the fertility of a soil sample. Students will report their findings to the class through a slides presentation. This unit is brought to you by Nicole Ray CTE) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Team Lead Mina Greas.
