Students explore the benefits of having trees in urban areas. As a class, they brainstorm the benefits and disadvantages of having trees in the city. Students then record the temperature of shaded and non-shaded areas and compare their hypothesis to their actual information. They determine the reason if trees should be planted in their neighborhood.
