SSSA logoIf you are curious to know more about soil, the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) has a variety of content available for you. In honor of 2015 being the International Year of Soil (IYS), they produced 12 short videos about soil and its benefits. These are available on the SSSA IYS page. It may now be 2021; however, the information is still very relevant.

If you are an educator, student, or just plain like to experiment, the SSSA Lessons page lets you search for lessons and activities based on grade level, topic, and resource type (activity, experiment, video, etc.). The SSSA k-12 Soil Science Teachers Resources page has several links of interest, including “Ask a Scientist”.

So, enjoy the spring weather and dig into some information about…soil.
