Program: Sense-Sational Tree Tour

Topic(s)
Ecology, Living With Our Environment, Nature Walk, Plant Biology/Botany
Description
School grounds transform into a scented, tactile, sound-filled and colorful world of adventure for young children: through the tangy smell of a citrus tree, the smooth bark and colorful of a Crape Myrtle, and the calls of nesting birds.

Engaging and fun, this fresh-air ‘Sense-Sational Tree Tour’ of campus trees engages students in a truly hands-on experience of their own school trees through their senses. Children make observations about the trees around them using this newfound perspective, creating a data-filled graph and interpreting their findings in a class discussion.
