A one page reading passage on how soil is formed, the different grain sizes of soil and why it is important. This is a very information filled passage.

Also included on the second sheet are 16 questions for the students to answer after reading the passage.

I used this as a review just before giving a test on soil to my 6th grade classes and it went good.

It can be used as an introduction or even as later in the year review.
