A quick and inexpensive technique to make a mini-soil profile is now available. Check out this new technique on the soil education site. This technique provides the student with a learning experience that can be made in the classroom or in the field at a very low cost using a note card and double-sided carpet tape.
Key messages to understanding soils have been added to the soil education site and to an educational CD entitled "Helping People Understand Soils-Tools for Educators, Version 2". The educational CD was released at the National Science Teachers Association conference in Atlanta, Georgia the first week of April 2004 by NRCS, USDA. The CD is available on request.
