All about Trees

$0.00

All about Trees introduces students to the world of trees and what makes them unique. Students will learn all about the different types of trees and their traits, and how their unique qualities set them apart from each other. They will also discover how trees contribute to the health of the environment in important ways.

There are many additional suggestions listed in the “Options for Lesson” section that you can take advantage of. One such option is to visit an area nearby with lots of trees and have students try to identify them. Another option is for students to write stories in which trees are the main focus. You could also have students collect various leaves and match them to a type of tree.

Description

What our All about Trees lesson plan includes

Lesson Objectives and Overview: All about Trees teaches students about the traits of a tree and its different parts. Students will discover many different types and learn how they might differ from each other. By the end of the lesson, they will also be able to explain why trees are important to the environment.

This lesson contains four pages of content. The first page introduces students to the fact that a tree is actually a plant, a very tall plant. The trunks are simply thick, wooden stems that grow many large branches. Students will learn that, like plants, trees need water, air, sunlight, and nutrients from soil to grow and survive. They will also discover how and why trees can survive the winter months even though they appear to die.

The next few pages discuss types of trees, why some trees’ leaves change color over time, and why they are important. Apart from providing oxygen into the air, trees provide people with a lot of good things. Wood allows people to build buildings or create fires for warmth. Fruit obviously contributes to a healthy diet for both animals and humans. They also give shade from a hot sun. The final page shows a diagram of the different parts of a tree.

BUILD A TREE ACTIVITY WORKSHEET

For the activity, students will work with a partner to create a new species of tree. They will design the tree using scratch paper and decide what qualities and traits it will have. You will approve your students’ rough drafts before they finalize anything. Students must include the six labels in the boxes on the worksheet on their final poster. They can include background images or drawings and must name the tree.

DECIDUOUS OR EVERGREEN PRACTICE WORKSHEET

There are two sections on the practice worksheet. The first section lists 10 statements. Students will read each sentence and decide whether it describes a deciduous (D) or evergreen (E) tree. The second section provides a couple images of trees for students to label.

ALL ABOUT TREES HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT

For the homework assignment, students will complete three sections. First, they will match short descriptions about a tree’s importance to whether it relates to human (H), animal (A), or environment (E) needs. Next, students will circle the correct word of two options to finish 10 sentences. Finally, they will answer nine questions about these tall plants using what they learned in the lesson.

Great!

This curriculum is straightforward and easy to use! For us, it's a great supplement and entry point into learning more information outside of what is in our curriculum. For some, they may be able to use it as their main curriculum and find library books and/or go on adventures/field trips to explore more! Thank you so much Clarendon!

Discussing All About Trees

The first graders in my STEAM class were glad to see and discuss trees as the leaves are just now coming out again. We drew and colored trees with favorite things in them - treehouses, swings, tire swings, nests, apples, etc. They enjoyed sharing the pictures and telling about their favorite things.
