||Tree Over Time
Have you ever observed a tree through the seasons?
Kindergarten classes each "adopt" a tree on our school grounds to observe throughout the seasons. They notice the changes that occur in trees over time. Students explore bark rubbings of their tree to help identify the kind of tree. They also gather leaves from their tree to do leaf rubbings and identify the tree. The focus is observing and recording data in a science journal through drawing and labeling.
