Several bins will be set up in the front of the classroom as the students walk in, containing soil. mulch, compost, and water.  Moisture and pH meters will also be on the front table with the bins.  On the board the question, What do you think is the difference between all of these, will be written.  As the class files in the students will be given the opportunity to play and explore.  When the whole class has arrived, the students will be instructed to get into pairs to bounce their ideas off of each other about the question on the board.  The pairs will then share their ideas  with the class (think-pair-share).
