In Year 3 we did an investigation into which soil would be most permeable -( let’s water through).
The children took turns to look at four different soil types and described what they looked like. Then the soil sample was placed in a filter inside a filter that was over a jug. Next 250 ml of water was poured over the soil and the children had to make careful observations about what the soil looked like as soon as the water was poured over the soil, and then after 5 minutes. After that the children discussed their findings.
