I did not know that different types of trees need specific types of soil. I learned that different ph levels make different amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. Plants need these nutrients to fight off diseases, and to grow. A change of ph can alter the life of an tree. Also ph are factors that determine what trees will grow in that soil.
Tabish i agree with you on how plants need nutrients to fight off diseases i thought that was very interesting also we didn't learn that when we were learning plants.
I didn't know that trees need a certain type of soil. I never really looked at soil that closely. I also learned that if the ph changes it change the tree's life. Ph helps the tree make nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. These nutrients help the plant fight diseases and grow. I learned many new things in this video.
I never knew that trees need certain soils. I also learned about ph. I didn't know that it could help the tree fight off diseases with nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. Ph is responsible for releasing those nutrients. Also, some trees need sandy, dry soil. While some need acidic soil.
I had no idea that specific trees need to live in a specific soil to grow. I also learned what a ph determines. I never knew that a change of ph level could alter the life of a tree like Tabish said.
I never knew that there were different types of soils that form depending on the weather in the area. And I also did not know that there was such thing as arctic soil ( please correct me if I am thinking of something different and has been seen).
I never knew that water dissolves some of the minerals that make up rocks. I also never knew that soil is a mixture of rock particles. I thought that plants took different nutrients every year. It's interesting how roots hold up the soil.
I never knew that there were more specific types of soil. I thought that there was only sandy, loam and clay. I also never knew that the roots of a plant hold up the soil.
I learned what pH was. I also learned that different plants need different soils.
I thought the pages and dirt detective activity was interesting. I learned what ph is and that it can be the reason a plant survives.The other fact I learned was that there is more types of soils then just Loam, Sandy and Clay.
Brendan I agree with you, I never knew that there were more types of soil than loam, sandy, and clay.
I learned that what ph is. different kind of trees grow in different soil. different trees grow at different elevations
I learned that what ph is. different kind of trees grow in different soil. different trees grow at different elevations. there is different kinds of soils
That was really interesting and I never knew that water dissolves some of the minerals that make up rocks so I think it's amazing that it can do that and there is a lot of exciting things in this that I just can't wait to learn more a bout it
I found it interesting that certain kinds of trees live at different elevations. But i don't get how that is posable, because trees can't chose where they live. Where ever thier seed lands is where they are going to live.
I learned what Ph is. I also learned that there are 6 types of soil.
I learned that the soil here in Massachusetts did not have a lot of humus on the O layer. While some other states have a lot of humus in their soil.
I learned that you could find clay in subsoil. I also learned that the soil crops grow in is called grassland soil. I didn't know that clean air and water are material resources. I also didn't know that the nutrients taken out by 1 crop is replaced by the next crop.
I learned that there are three different levels and they are topsoil, subsoil, and solid rock!
I never knew that there was more than 3 different types of soil, because w haven't learned about more in class. I also thought it was astounding that each plant has a different Ph
I learned that weathering is the wearing away of a rock. I never new what a pH was! A pH determines which nutrients are available.
I learned that pH level determines which nutrients are available. That gives us clues to which plants grow where.
I never knew that there was forest kind of soil in Massachusetts and that there is Grassland soil. I also learned that there are horizons in soil ! Finally did you know that if you leave land bare the wind and/or water will carry the soil away.
I thought that was really interesting. I would like to learn what nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium are. I also didn't know that plants needed ph level. Now I know that ph helps determine the trees that will grow in the soil. Finally I didn't know that water could dissolve minerals that make rocks. That is what I learned in the to different pieces.
I will try to dig a deep hole if I have a shovel and if my mom let me. I always know there is stones under ground and iron ores are in the stones, but the pages that Mrs.Pittorino want us to read said there are iron ores in the sub soil. I didn't know there are ores in the soil too. I better ask my mom that, if she knows. also, what made iron ores? Can any body tell me, if yes please tell me when you see me.
I learned that there is clay found in the subsoil. I also learned that there are three types of soil, topsoil, subsoil, and solid rock! I never knew that the nutrients taken out by one crop would be replaced by another!
I never knew that there were so many different types of soil in different places around the country. I also didn't know that weathering meant the wearing away of rock. And finally I didn't know that soil can be washed away by by rainwater or wind.
l really liked the game this was very interesting that l didn't know that soil can fight off diseases. i didn't know there were 3 types of soil before reading the book. l learned that pH determinants which nutrients is available.
i did know that plants and trees need specific types of soils. I also learned about pH. The dirt detective thing was also very interesting. Also i learned that pH helps determine the trees that will grow in the soil. I also learned that there are three types of soil topsoil, subsoil and solid rock.
I didn't know that trees need a certain type of soil to grow. I also found out that there are different soils in different places, depending on the weather.
I thought that it was very interesting that there is different soil types depending on where you live. I also never knew that soils had different P.H. levels, I learned that the P.H. level determines which nutrients are available. When reading the article I noticed that plants and soil help each other out, the plants help the soil from blowing away, and the soil helps the plant from blowing away.
I didn't know that different types of trees need different types of soil. I also learned what pH was. I didn't know that weathering meant until I read the book. I learned that soil is really important!
I also found it interesting that a pH level shows which nutrients are available.
I did not know that there are so many different kinds of soils. lots of trees need different soils to grow.
what i thought was interesting was how certain trees grow at different terrines and elevation. and how they could measure the soil with that certain soil tool. In the handbook what I thought was the most MAJESTIC fact was how the soil under topsoil in Alaska was always frozen.In addition to al of that i did not know that the pH level can show you witch nutrients are available.
i thought it was very interesting that there can be so many different kinds of soil in different places. i like how you can see the map of the US and the different kinds of soil.
I learned what Ph means. I also learned that different types of trees grow in different types of soil. I also learned what weathering was.
One thing I learned is that there are a lot of different types of soil. Some are Forest soil, Grassland Soil, Desert Soil, Tropical soil, Artic Soil, and Mountain Soil. In addition, I didn't know what pH levels were. I learned that pH levels determine which nutrients are available. Also, I learned that pH levels tell you what plant can grow in different soils.
I didn't know that we had so many types of soil in the U.S. I thought the map was cool. I also learned what pH levels were and how they were important.
wow,I never knew that different trees need different soil ! I mean trees are trees so I never would have thought that different kinds of trees need different kinds of soil if I haden't seen the video I never would have known ! Another thing I learned was that we have so many different kinds of soil ! I woulden't have known that if it haden't been for the map, it's amazing how one state can have one type of soil while the another state close by can have a completely different one !
It was interesting how trees needed a surtain type of soil and ph
I never knew that you can determine the type of soil by the pH level. I did know that nothing would happen when you put water in sand. I thought that the learning experience was very interesting
Wow, that was interesting. I didn't even know most of the things before I read the section of soil in the sciencesouorse!
I never knew that you could know the ph of the soil type of the trees!
i very much agree with Celina. when we first started learning about soil, i only thought there was one type of soil! but theres 3 types. is there a preticular type of soil plants can always grow in?
I didn't know that the sand ph is 5.0 and orange color and the clay ph is 6.0 and it is green
Before this unit I onistly dident know that soil was that important. But now I see that we could not live without plants. I also lerned that EVERYTHING relies on plants.
i found interesting that plants need a specific type of soil to grow in.
I found it extraordinary how there are so many different types of soil around the world. I also did not know that sand Ph is 5.o and clay's 6.0. I especially found it intresting how different trees need to grow in different types of soil.
I learned that weathering is the wearing away of a rock. And there are different types of soil layers like example There's topsoil ( loose, rich soil near the top of the surface), Subsoil ( Holds many minerals so that rain showers washes down from the topsoil) and Rock (it is below subsoil is large pieces of rock).
i wonder why the paper turned ornge
I always thought that you could plant a tree anywhere and it will still grow .Plants need a certain type of soil though .To determine soil you need to figure out its properties.
I never knew trees need a spicific soil to grow! I also never knew about pH. I liked that dirt detecives was like a mini game! I think they are from a natioal park around Arizona. It is very important that we take care of both the soil and trees. We need both for survil!
I never new desert soil doesn't have a lot of humas. I thought it was cool that rain can wash away all the nutrients. I also never new mountain soil doesn't have top soil.
i learned that the soil in water can be made by rocks rubbing up against each other making little peices fall off. i liked the picture on the last page too.
I have learned many important things in both the game and the 3 pages. In the game, I learned that trees need nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium in order to live. That was very interesting to me. I also didn't know that some trees need different types of soils in order to thrive and live easily! I thought that it doesn't matter what type it was, it just had to have enough nutrients and water!
I never knew what pH was until i watched this video. I never thought that different trees have a specific soil that the need to grow in. I never knew that the rain can wash the nutrients (humus) like what Nick said. i also never knew that there were different types of soil in every region.
I never knew that there was so many different types of soil and that trees need a specific soil to grow! I also learned what Ph means. Ph level determines which nutrients are available. I learned what weathering means too.
I found it interesting that different trees need different soil. I learned about weathered rocks. The map helped me understand what the soil is like here.
I found it quite interesting because i never knew how many things soil
holds for us to discover
I though you could plant a tree in any type of soil. But it needs its own type of soil. You need to determine the soil and find out its properties to find the pH.
I found interesting that different types of soil link to different types of plants. plus, I was a little confuse when I saw pH, but now it makes perfect sense sense to me. I knew that there were different kinds of soil that were in different places but I had no clue what/how many different varieties of soil there are in just one country. I also didn't know that mostly plants rely on the soil that they have. This activity was very fun and safistacated. I LOVED it
I learned that different kinds of trees grow on different elevations, I really think that is fascinating. I also learned about ph levels. The last thing I learned (like Basim) that there are more soils than loam, sand and clay.
I never knew that soil PH was important.I also learned that a tree needs a specific type of soil to grow in. I also learned about weathered rocks.
I learned that the pH level is an important part of the soil and how plants live in certain kinds of soil. Like Zoe, I learned that there are other soils than sand,clay, and loam.
I learned about pH levels. I also learned that (like Zoe and Roni) that there are many more types of of soil than the ones we are learning about, loam, clay, sand.
I learned that different kinds of trees grow in different kinds of soil. like Roni I learned that pH level is an important part of soil.
i wonder how sturdy bedrock is I really wonder?
I have a connection of what the book said about looking at a big hole. When I was in Seattle, there was a construction site going on. The constructors dug a big hole in the ground and I literally saw the layers, how much moist it is, and the colors of it. It looked really cool. Soil is something that is critical for our survival. Soil plays a part in the ecosystem that is very important and some would say crucial for life. It is very intriguing not only that soil differs within the US, but also differs with the world ( I learned that somewhere else). I would rather live near the Great Plains, than living in the northeastern states. The soil is not rich, as the book said. It contains very minor amount of humus. I really liked how it explained about the population of different types of soils. The book was very useful
wow that was very interesting. i have a thoery of my own. here goes. so it rains and rains and and rains. i think you get my point. well as it rains over billions and billions of year it erodes at the soil. say we have 25 miles of crust. it rains through out the time period of 1,000,000,000 years. we might have like 23 miles of crust left. so my point is that in a few trillion years the crust might be gone and part of the mantle dries and that becomes the new crust. as the cycle contiues we might not have any thing to live on. then again we will probably be living on mars.
I feel that this new knowledge of the inner-inner core will reveal knowledge of the beginnings of the earth. It would be very fascinating if the inside of the earth was liquid. If so, is the center of the earth still magnetic? I hope they find more about the new layers of the earth!
I learned some new things about the layers of the earth. I learned that the inner inner core is almost as hot as the sun. also I learned that the inner inner core is about as big as the moon. Thats what i learned
