Can You Ask a Tree How Old It Is?

Students inspect a cross cut of a tree to see how a tree is a record of the past. In this earth science lesson, students count rings of a cross section of a tree to determine it's age.  Students can investigate why some of the rings are farther apart and relate to the tree growth.
