Meet a Tree
It is always fun to get acquainted with your neighbors and then share good times with them throughout the year. Meet the best neighbors in the world-the trees that live in your yard, in the neighborhood, or even in a nearby park. Make a list with your family of all the wonderful things trees do for us and for the animals that live in them. Do your tree homework to learn the different parts of a tree and their functions. Which part of the tree makes the food? How does a tree get a drink? How does the water and food get to the rest of the tree? Why do the leaves change colors in the fall?
After completing all this “homework” get outside and meet a tree! Take along a tree field guide to identify these amazing neighbors!
Look and find:
If you could interview your tree, what questions would you like to ask it?
Write a poem or a story about your tree. Send it to me and we can share it with all the other tree lovin’ friends. My email is email@example.com
Come enjoy the outdoors with us!
