Autumn is a great time to begin a yearlong tree study. This week the children picked a tree that they can visit and observe regularly.
We observed different trees. They adopted a tree to be their very own special tree . They were asked to sketch them into their journals.
Taking note of their trees shape , leafs , bark and if their tree had nuts flowers cones etc .
After examining and sketching the tree they made leaf and bark rubbings to incorporate into their journal.
They then took a look at a local field guide to see if they could identify what type of tree they chose and to learn a little more about it.
