    1. The definition of sod is "grass-covered." A sod house isn't covered with grass. It's made of "bricks" cut from sod (grass and the underlying dirt).

    Cheryl,

    In the vocabulary sections of the literature guides we try to be as concise as possible with our answers since this section is only defining a word or phrase. Most of the pictures of sod houses we were able to populate showed grass-covered houses akin to the picture shown in the actual text. We will look into updating the definition to include the fact that sod does incorporate roots/dirt as well. Thanks for your suggestion!

      I was trying to think of a concise way to define it for that very reason. I didn't want to leave it as grass covered, because that makes it sound like a house that just has grass growing on it. We are going to use "bricks cut from sod" and then discuss what sod is. Even in SoCal you will see people laying sod, so it's not a completely foreign concept.

          Very! We learned about them a long time ago (I think with my older kids). I could totally get into the cool in the summer and warm in the winter aspect, but not so much the dirt everything, LOL!
