This resource provides a simple, easy to organize outdoor activity which allows students the opportunity to discover and describe trees in the urban environment. Students take a walking trip around their local community; they sketch a map of one block of their local area and pinpoint all of the trees growing there on it. Using a tree key provided in class students keep a tally of trees observed in their local area. They discuss the diversity of trees found in the region.
Easy to organize activity which connects students with their natural environment in their local area. Encourages teachers to take the learning outside and provides an outdoor hands-on activity for the students. Appropriate for kindergarten to grade four students and easily adapted for grades five and six students. Links to the science curriculum.
