30 Activities and Observations for Exploring the World of Trees and ForestsBook - 2016
Young nature enthusiasts will learn these and many other fascinating facts about the wonderful world of trees in Treecology . This fun and interactive resource includes plentiful full-color photos and drawings and clear, kid-friendly discussions of tree structures, families, and foods; the interaction between trees and the wildlife that depend on them; tree and forest-related jobs and preservation, and much more. With encouragement to "Try This," "Look For," and "Listen For," kids participate in 30 hands-on activities that promote observation and analysis, writing and drawing, math and science, and nature literacy skills. They will measure the circumference of a tree trunk, press and preserve leaves, study the textures of tree bark, find evidence of forest creatures, record their findings in a decorated forest logbook, and more. Readers from any region will start to take notice of the trees around them--not just in forests and woods but also around the schools, parks, buildings, and sidewalks of their town, and in their own backyards. Useful resources include a glossary of "tree terms," common and scientific names, a list of tree and nature organizations and groups, and a teacher's guide to initiate classroom discussion and investigation.

Trees are boring. I mean, they just sit there in the ground being trees. Right? HA! Trees rule! And let this book show you why!
