The Giving Tree

Learners explore wants and needs. In this ecology and economics lesson, students listen to the story The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein and compile a class list of what the boy got from the tree. Learners categorize these items as "wants" or "needs," and then locate items made from trees in magazines to create a poster.
