Soil Layers Song

Here is a song I created to help my 6th grade students study. I hope you enjoy. You see it on the ground could be rocky Sand or clay, silt, water, and dead bodies It provides for roots it's an anchor Food source for the plants A home, insects, spiders, worms many others Do you know soil is formed by erosion? Tiny rocks coming off of Earth's surface The rocks will erode, breaking, breaking off and they're mixing With dead organic matter, mixing, mixing And soil's made up of layers and layers Range from rich organic to rocky Some have life some too low to live in Horizons layers sit on top The top organic layer Leaf litter and organic matter Then the topsoil below Seeds and plants, roots grow, dark layer Humus decomposed mixed minerals layer Eluviation is light Sand and silt, water drips down right Subsoil is next, clay Mineral deposits, made solid Regolith broken rock, no roots in this layer Bedrock is beneath Yeah, come on Soil types have unique characteristics Color, texture, minerals, and structure Gelisols-permafrost Histosols-organic, and Spodosols- Acid forest soils, Andisols- are volcanic Vertisols-clay, Oxisols-Rainforest Alfisols-they are leached Ultisols-more Inceptisols-weak subsurfaces Mollisols-grassy, Ardisols-of arid, Entisols-are recent And soil's made up of layers and layers Range from rich organic to rocky Some have life some too low to live in Horizons layers sit on top The top organic layer Leaf litter and organic matter Then the topsoil below Seeds and plants, roots grow, dark layer Humus decomposed mixed minerals layer Eluviation is light Sand and silt, water drips down right Subsoil is next, clay Mineral deposits, made solid Regolith broken rock, no roots in this layer Bedrock is beneath Soil, layer, horizons, layers Layers, layers, layers, lay...layers Hey, they are unique, are unique Hey...
