Soil moisture is the water that is held in the spaces between soil particles, generally in the upper 10 cm of soil; this small amount of water plays a critical role in controlling the transfer of water and heat energy between Hydrosphere, Biosphere, and Geosphere.

This lesson introduces the Earth system science spheres through model making and discussion. Students will work within an Earth system science notebook to chronicle their work and learning.
