Year-long Tree Observation Activity

I loved taking my students outside for a science project!

If you teach a yearlong class, this is a very worthwhile project. Take your students outside once a month. By the end of the school year, they will have produced an album of observations of their personal tree.

Be sure to have them read the Summary Questions each month to see what could be done that month.

CONSIDER THIS: Add a Tree Observation Unit to your curriculum!
