What is soil?

-On Earth soil is a mixture of weathered rock, mineral fragments, organic matter, water and air.

-Soil development is a slow process that depends on underlying rock composition, climate, and other conditions

slide9

Let’s examine our soil sample

-Safety

-Tools

-Observations

-Data Table (SAB page 79 Activity Master 2.4A)

slide10

Earth and Mars Soil Comparison

  • Examine the soil samples and record your data
slide11

Observation Questions

1. What were some of the similarities?

2. What were some of the differences?

3. Did you see any signs of life in the soil samples?

slide12

Conclusions

What were some possible reasons that none of the local soil samples looked exactly alike?

2. Which one did you think was Martian Soil Simulant? How could you test your hypothesis?

3. What have you learned to help answer the big question?

How does soil on Earth compare to soil on Mars?
