Urban Forest Shade

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.

Cathy D.
It is so helpful to have so many resources on one website. Sources that used to take hours of hunting on line now take little time to locate. In the event of a change of plans or if I need sub plans for the day, my work is done.
