Welcome to the World of Trees!

On Wednesday, October 16th, we went for a walk at our school to look for trees. We wanted to study and observe different trees.  We found conifers and deciduous trees.  Deciduous trees have leaves that change color in the Fall and will eventually fall from the tree.  Conifers have needles that always stay green. They are also known as evergreens.
These students are measuring the trunk of their White Birch tree.
It's circumference was 39 inches.

These three students were writing and drawing their observations about their tree.

Our classmate was checking to see if his arms could fit around the trunk of his tree.

This student is also checking to see if her arms could fit around her tree.
She loves hugging trees!

These arborists are measuring their tree to see how large the trunk is.

This arborist is recording her data in her tree journal.
