The class will soon be singing along and enjoying this fun music video that highlights trees. Sid, Gerald and Dad are on a backyard camp-out when they launch into the lyrics that identify all of the wonderful things trees provide us. This clip will definitely motivate students to notice and care about the trees they see around them every day.
This film would make a great introduction to a plant study in which students learn about photosynthesis and respiration. A class could also investigate the seasonal changes in deciduous trees with outdoor observations of buds, leaves and growth. Adaptations to cold environments can be explored by examining coniferous needles under microscopes. In an outdoor tree hunt students could sort and classify trees based on parameters like leaf shape, bark or flowers.
The video could also be the basis of a great community and school stewardship project. Each class could plant and care for a tree in a local park. At the end of the school year the students could organize a celebration event that highlights the value of trees and the conservation work of the school.
