This week in science we looked at what soils are made up from. We found out that making soils was just like making a cake. We found it had 10 different ingredients and needed time to ‘bake’ or decompose.
Soil is made up of water, clay, seeds, sand, rocks, dead plants and animals, faces, worms and air. These are all mixed together and then take a long time to decompose. In fact it can take 500years to make one inch of soil.
