Explore the life inside trees as scholars learn vocabulary through Debbie Miller's informational text Are Trees Alive? Familiarize pupils with the new words they will hear like anchor, disease, awaken, harsh, and swell before reading. Next, they make personal connections using the comprehension questions for each word. Check out the graphic organizers for visual learners. Use this strategy for any text.
All you need for this interactive, discovery-based measurement lesson is a tree and the sun! Scholars explore three different methods used to determine the height of trees, using the law of reflection, the shadow method, and the "bottoms up" method. Afterward, learners compare and contrast the three methods and finalize the approximate height of the tree. This 5-page worksheet contains detailed instructions and 12 questions to get students out of the classroom and thinking!
Perfect for a math lesson during your apple unit. Kindergartners count the apples on each tree, and then count how many trees have three, four, and five apples. Once they're done counting, they draw three trees with different amounts of apples on them, and add all the trees together. A great way to incorporate sorting, counting, addition, and yummy apples!
