We were studying various types of rocks and soils in fourth class. We had to sort and group the rocks and samples of soil  and then compare and contrast them, focusing on certain criteria.

We looked at different samples of soil from areas around Dublin. In our experiment, we added the same amount of water to each soil type and observed how each reacted.

We also had to look at the properties of various rocks in our groups and share our findings with the class.

Lastly, we explored the influence of soils and rocks on animal and plant life in our environment 🙂
