Designed to make lessons accessible and understandable, this portable kit provides an excellent overview of major soil quality topics. Teachers can introduce students to important chemical tests used for evaluating both soil quality and fertility and then tie those measurements to the principles of plant metabolism. The kit combines detailed field-testing procedures, in-depth background information about each parameter, and classroom activities that provide an introduction to each parameter. Through real-world examples, students can gain a better understanding of the relevance of macronutrients and other parameters in everyday life.
Kit includes: Agriculture Combination Test Kit for testing nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (N, P, K) with materials for 50 tests of each parameter; Hanna pH/Conductivity/TDS Low-Range Tester; Hanna HI 145 Digital Thermometer; 48-page teacher’s manual with a curriculum that meets National Science Teachers Association Standards; parameter summary in PDF and PowerPoint format (on included CD); laminated laboratory instruction cards with step-by-step field test procedures; reproducible lab activity worksheets with instructions, goals, hypothesis, and testing procedure results/observations; glossary of key terms in PDF format (on included CD); and a backpack carrying case that holds all kit components.
