Activity 1: What are trees?

Watch the videos and read the book (on Espresso) below to learn about trees.


Activity 2: Let's go on a tree hunt

If you are able to, visit a local park with your responsible adult and look carefully at the different trees around you. Collect some leaves to bring back home to observe further.

How do the trees look? How did they feel? Why do some trees look different to others? Can you name some of the trees you saw? Which trees are evergreen and which are deciduous?

Challenge: Write about a tree you saw and describe it in detail.
