A Month of Lessons About Trees

Students participate in numerous activities to explore characteristics of various trees. Over a period of one month, students make rubbings of tree bark, wax pressed leaves, identify and categorize them and organize a chart. Afterward, they listen to guest speakers such as a lumberman, carpenter, or woodcarver. Students discuss national parks, forests, and the ecosystem for trees. Four week of hands-on activities are listed.
