Celebrate Arbor Day is intended to immerse your students in nature - specifically in the area of trees.
You will find a suggested Arbor Day Program in this unit. The program and day can be used as a type of showcase for the student's work and new found knowledge.
Included also is a list of great reading material. An excellent way to acquaint students with the subject of trees is to work through the sections on Trees and Shrubs.
Which ever way you choose to use this unit, it is designed so that your class spends time outside. Take the opportunity to get your students outside - so they can do their own observations and collecting.
