The Problem

I hope my students will learn how to plant and care for a tree. I hope they will also learn about how trees turn carbon dioxide into oxygen and help our environment. I also hope that they learn the importance of taking care of our world and that it is up to all of us to improve the health of our planet.

Our Plan

The children will help me plant a tree. Every two weeks we will water, remove competing weeds, and replenish the mulch for the tree. We will take measurements around the trunk of the tree and make leaf estimations to make sure the tree is growing. The children will document data and will make scientific models to explain their data to others. They will also write essays, or a tree report on what they learned about trees.
