Trees are essential to forest ecosystems and the animals that live there. In this field trip, students will learn about tree anatomy and function while comparing trees to our own bodies. Students will have the opportunity to sharpen their observation skills as they explore life in and around a tree. Our forest exploration will reinforce tree life cycles, components of a forest ecosystem and seasonal changes.
