Trees: From Roots to Leaves

Through this series of five interactive sessions, students will examine the fundamentals of tree ecology in the classroom and in the field. During classroom sessions, students will examine and classify specimens, investigate using microscopes and hand lenses, and apply knowledge in role-play activities. In outdoor field science sessions, students will have the opportunity to explore in small groups, think critically about the workings of an ecosystem, and apply learned concepts and vocabulary in the context of forest, pond, and meadow habitats.
