Here is a handsome hands-on investigation of how oil spills affect the trees in mangrove swamps. The only tiny downside to this resource is the fact that there is no handout with the lab instructions, so you will either need to create one, display the procedure via a projector, or verbally walk your ecologists through the experiment. Don't let this deter you, however. Much learning and real-world connections are to be made through the lesson and the replete resources. The plan is thoughtfully written and also links you to lessons about the animals affected by oil spills. 
Aspiring statisticians create tree diagrams and figure probabilities of events based on those diagrams. They practice adding and multiplying fractions and explain complementary probabilities. Students use computers activities to make models and discover the basic concepts of probability models.
The instructional activity starts with a discussion on how and why we should be respectful in the outdoor environment; then it's outside we go! Little scientists look for two trees that are very different, they draw each tree in detail and then return to the class for further instruction.

In this math worksheet, students answer 50 multiple choice and true and false questions on trees, functions and algorithms. They interpret binary and mystery trees.
Young mathematicians explore data collection and mathematical problem solving. They will work in cooperative groups to determine the height of a tree by measuring several predetermined distances on the ground. They will use the data collected to set up mathematical ratio problems and calculate the height of the tree.
First graders, after reading The Alphabet Tree by Leo Lionni, retell the events of the story on a flow map. Then, utilizing Kid Pix software, they choose an event, illustrate it, and write a caption for it. They finally put their events in a slide show and present them to the class.

Students review the letters of the alphabet using the book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, by Bill Martin, Jr. & John Archambault. They create their own alphabet "tree" in the classroom.
Students compare and contrast different types of trees and leaves. They identify parts of trees. Students discuss uses of trees. They use a variety of media to create and model trees.
Students consider the best place to plant a tree. In this environment lesson plan, students identify urban locations that are compatible with particular tree types. Students decide what trees would go where and why they would survive.
For this fiction books worksheet, students complete seven multiple choice questions about the book, "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn." These questions contain concepts such as choosing the correct author, who published the book, when it was on the New York Times best seller list, and more.
In this books worksheet, students complete seven multiple choice questions about the book, "Across The River And Into The Trees." These questions contain concepts such as choosing the correct author, who published the book, when it was on the New York Times best seller list, popularity of other books at the same time, and more.
Young scholars complete pre reading, writing, and post reading activities for the book The Great Kapok Tree. In this guided reading lesson plan, students complete writing, go over vocabulary, answer short answer questions, have discussions, and more.
Students investigate the decomposition process. In this ecology lesson, students participate in a play, "Up the Treehouse" where the main idea focuses on a decomposing tree and how food chains are effected by decomposition. After the play, students receive a rotting piece of wood and examine it for living organisms that live in the wood.
Students complete pre reading, writing, and post reading activities for the book Aani and the Tree Huggers. In this guided reading lesson plan, students complete writing, go over vocabulary, answer short answer questions, have discussions, and more.
Middle schoolers work in pairs or small groups to gather data about a tree. Each group might gather data about a different tree; all groups might collect data about the same tree; or two teams might gather data about each tree and compare their results.
Pupils create their own book of ideas about saving the environment. They research information the role of trees in the environment. Then make a large tree for a classroom bulletin board and put the leaves on the tree.
Pupils create their own book about the role of trees in the environment. They are to come up with a list of 30 reasons they benefit the environment. They hold a publication party to release their book.
Students demonstrate measurement of the trunk, crown, and height using vertical and horizontal measurement. Compare results with other groups. Create a graph of their findings for the trunk, crown, and height of the tree. D
This packet for reviewing the numbers 1 through 20 has a creative and well-thought out method for practicing this important skill. Little ones paste or draw apples on a tree to represent the numbers printed on the apple the bear is carrying. They can read a sentence stating how many apples will be on the tree. You will find an individual page for each individual number. During the fall or an apple-themed unit, you could have learners make a counting book with the pages provided.
