See in the manual in the chapter with session plans how you can bring this song forward to learn about soil types.

There’s 3 different types of mineral in soil
There’s 3 different types of mineral in soil

There’s a big crunchy one, it’s called sand
down at the beach you feel it in your hand

There’s 3 different types of mineral in soil
There’s 3 different types of mineral in soil

There’s a medium one, it’s called silt
it feels soapy when you rub it on your kilt

There’s 3 different types of mineral in soil
There’s 3 different types of mineral in soil

There’s a tiny one it’s called clay,
slippery and slidey all the way

There’s 3 different types of mineral in soil
There’s 3 different types of mineral in soil

We take care of the Earth, we take care of each other
We take care of the Earth, we take care of each other
And we share, share, share, with everyone everywhere

With everyone the birds and the ants
With everyone the soil and the plants

We take care of the Earth, we take care of each other
We take care of the Earth, we take care of each other
And we share, share, share, with everyone everywhere

With everyone the worms and the bees
With everyone with you and with me

We take care of the Earth, we take care of each other
We take care of the Earth, we take care of each other
And we share, share, share, with everyone everywhere
