Connection between crops and soil in Soil in Soil – Our Life – Class 7 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Soil – Our Life

Activity Name: Connection between crops and soil in Soil – Our Life

Activity Description:

In this activity, students will study the connection between crops and soil by researching information from the Atlas and other books available in the school library. They will make a list of different types of soils found in their state and the crops that are commonly grown in those soils. Additionally, they will investigate the type of soil prevalent in the districts where paddy cultivation is widespread.

Required Items:

  • Atlas
  • Books on soils and agriculture

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Form groups of four or five students.
  2. Assign each group the task of researching information on soils and crops in the state.
  3. In the library, use the Atlas and other relevant books to gather data about the different types of soils present in the state.
  4. Make a list of crops that are commonly grown in each type of soil.
  5. Research and identify the districts where paddy cultivation is extensive.
  6. Find out the specific type of soil present in these paddy-cultivating districts.

Experiment Observations:

  1. Each group will have a list of different soil types found in their state and the crops associated with each soil type.
  2. The groups will also identify the specific soil type prevalent in districts with significant paddy cultivation.

Note down your observations in below table format


  1. Ensure that students handle library books and resources with care.
  2. Encourage students to cross-check information from multiple sources to ensure accuracy.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

Through this activity, students will learn about the close relationship between soil type and the types of crops that thrive in a particular region. They will understand that certain crops are better suited for specific soil types, and agricultural practices should be tailored accordingly to achieve optimal crop yields.
