The observation of trees creates a captivating introduction for budding botanists and arborists into the science of fungi, microorganisms, and giant trees, while providing a bold and exciting curriculum for outdoor STEM learning.
Each one of our Junior Naturalist lesson plans contains a full week’s worth of activities, centered around a specific, nature-based theme, encouraging children and their parents to bring education outside to manifest a deeper appreciation to mother nature.
Our Tree Observation lesson plan offers kids a week loaded with activities that promote movement and song, reading, and critical thinking.
