T is for Tree

We have been learning about trees this week. We learned about the roots of the tree and enjoyed watching Peep and the Root Problem. We talked about the parts of the tree and read

I found these great web sites about trees- This web site is from the University of Illinois and is an audio guided lesson about trees. This web site is a real life time lapse of a deciduous tree in Michigan. Great for my southern kindys!

In Core Knowledge we talk about Deciduous trees and Evergreen trees. I found this great book about the temperate deciduous forest. What a great opportunity to learn new vocabulary!

We drew a deciduous tree and an evergreen tree as well!
