Arbor Day Tree Journal

ages 3-6


Camera, printouts or copies of pictures, glue or tape, markers, notebook or journal, information from the internet

Activity Detail

To celebrate Arbor Day, learn more about the trees in your own yard! Start by taking a picture of each tree in your yard. If you do not have any trees, use the ones on your street or substitute house plants. Next do a little research with your child on the internet. Try to figure out the names of your trees and any special characteristics they may have (flowers, berries, etc). Next, paste the photo of the tree, along with the tree's name and a leaf from the tree, into a spiral notebook or journal. This activity will help your child gain a special appreciation of the importance and beauty of the trees he sees around him every day.

Great idea for those in good tree areas! Actually, we all have at least three tree types around our homes, right? That's a start! I'm ready to go!
