The way deciduous trees change right before our eyes every year is captivating! This unit helps you take time to observe trees in all seasons and learn more about their mighty ways and powerful purposes.
Delightful Deciduous Trees comes with a huge amount of notebooking pages – Nineteen! Some are seasonal scavenger hunts, others focus on tree parts, tree life and tree comparisions. The notebooking pages alone will keep you busy for quite some time! However, there are many additional ideas for studying trees outdoors. From leaves to bark to tree critters, ideas abound for detailed observation.
At home, you can choose from such things as making chlorophyll prints, graphing leaves or completing a transpiration experiment. You might also choose to learn more about photosynthesis, fungi, deciduous forests, state trees, erosion control, Arbor Day, botanists and more by completing one or more of the many suggested projects.
Deciduous trees offer us so much learning each and every season. Don’t miss out on studying such an amazing nature topic!.

These are links to specific titles that we have suggested where we ask you to do your own internet search because of copyright. We’re hoping this will be an acceptable compromise! There are often other books we have suggested to go along with the art, composer or poetry suggestions. They are already included in the “recommended book” section, so we chose not to link them again.
As always, if you come across a great link or additional idea for any of these areas, please let us know and we’ll add it right away!
