Soil Profile There are different types of soil, each with its own set of characteristics. Dig down deep into any soil, and you’ll see that it is made of layers, or horizons (O, A, E, B, C, R). Put the horizons together, and they form a soil profile. Like a biography, each profile tells a story about the life of a soil. Most soils have three major horizons (A, B, C) and some have an organic.
The multiple-choice and written-response questions in this Earth science exam will test students' knowledge and understanding of chemical weathering, mechanical weathering, the pH scale, fertilizers, soil, and plant growth. In this printable, students are also asked to interpret a diagram of a soil profile.

Soil “horizons” are discrete layers that make up a soil profile. They are typically parallel with the ground surface. In some soils, they show evidence of the actions of the soil forming processes. O horizons are dominated by organic material. Some are saturated with water for long periods or were once saturated but are now artificially drained; others have never been saturated. A horizons.
In this soil science worksheet, students read about layers of soil and the order they are arranged. Students analyze a labeled diagram of a soil profile. Students use the provided soil profile cards and one inch carpet tape to measure.
A clay soil also takes longer than a sandy soil to dry after a rain. Because of the better drainage, a sandy soil can be worked sooner. With a wet clay soil, the producer or gardener must wait longer for the soil to dry sufficiently. Soil texture may limit which crops can be grown. For example, root crops, such as carrots and onions, perform best in a sandy soil because it is loose and allows.
