Day 6 
On August 29th, 2017, our eighth graders learned about the amount of water soil can hold. Our teachers demonstrated this by wetting a paper towel. When the towel was dripping wet, it demonstrated soil saturation. Once it had stopped dripping, but we could still squeeze some water out of it, the towel was then representing soil capacity. We later learned that we want our soil to be at soil capacity when we grow most plants. This way, our plants won't get over watered, but they also won't wilt or wither from lack of water. When we could no longer squeeze water out of the towels, they had reached wilting point. this is when the plants can no longer get water out of the soil and start to wilt.
