Trees

We studied trees this week. I took the kids on a walk to collect bark and leaves for impression pictures. The day before, we watched a video on the different parts of a tree. They learned what the roots are for and how they hold the tree up. We saw how the rings are made in a tree and that they each stand for a year that the tree has lived. It was great to take them out and show them these things. We saw a tree that had been cut down, and the rings were so clear.
Afterwards, we brought the bark and leaves inside and made impressions with them using crayons and paper. They cut the impressions out and glued them to poster board to make trees. We had a great time.
