Investigating soil erosion

'Why does soil get washed away? Investigating why some farmers lose their soil through erosion whilst others do not'.

Soil erosion is a normal part of the natural rock cycle, but it can become a major problem in many rural areas where people depend on the land for their livelihood. This activity provides the opportunity to investigate some of the factors involved in limiting soil erosion. Video clip.
Your pupils can extend the activity by doing some soil painting too.
Many more soil activities can be found on our website by using the search engine or alphabetical index.

Soil erosion is the displacement of the upper layer of soil, the agents of soil erosion are the same as the agents of all types of erosion: water, wind, ice, or gravity. Running water is the leading cause of soil erosion because water is abundant and has a lot of power. The wind is also a leading cause of soil erosion because wind can pick up soil and blow it far away.
