Second graders in Ms.  Waleko's class have been learning about  the different parts of soil and how soil is helpful to plants. They took humus, silt, clay, and small rocks to create their own soil from scratch.  "We are going to use our homemade soil to grow bulbs in our indoor grow lab," said science teacher Mr. Knight.
 
Second graders are finishing up their pebbles, sand, and silt unit by using inorganic materials combine with organic materials to grow new plants.
