Through naming and exlopring trees thoroughly students will recognize and understand the tree life in their local environment. By examining local species, students will learn to identify the characteristics of different trees and develop skill in describing and interpreting the structural features of trees. Big Ideas: -For students to enhance their observations and thoughts about trees through video. -For students to be engaged in discourse about the things they “See, Think and Wonder” when observing video footage of trees captured by students.
