 Abstract
Public education on soil and soil science in Korea was reviewed through textbooks written in Korean which were used in the primary schools since 1950`s. Numbers of words 흙[heuk], the Korean native word meaning soil, and 토양[土壤, toyang], originated from Chinese characters, were counted, and compared with the textbooks published in 1950`s, 1970`s, and 1990`s, 2010`s. The Korean native word "heuk" was used 20 times in 1950`s, and increased to 55 times in 1970`s. In 1990`s version, it was decreased to 31 times and to 20 times in the 2010`s version. The first appearance in the 1950`s version was in the 3rd grade book, but was in the grade books in both 1990`s and 2010`s. In this recent version, the primary school students met this word on the poet, "Toad, Toad build a house", and "Sprout come out through soil clod". The word, "토양, toyang", originated from Chinese characters, 土壤, appears only 2 times in the grade in 2010`s version. Authors conclusively recommend children should learn meaning of soil at early stage of primary school easily with positive image.
