This is a project I created where students write a story to tell the "Life of a Tree" and accompany their story with an illustration of the cross section of their tree (tree cookie with rings). Through this project students will demonstrate their understanding of the growth pattern of a tree and how factors affecting the tree are seen in different coloration and size of the growth rings.
This package contains:
- Full page project assignment handout (guidelines and rubric)
- 3 to a page project assignment handout (guidelines only)
- 2 to a page assignment marking rubric for assessment purposes
Please see my "Tree Ring Analysis" http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Tree-Ring-Analysis-Dendrochronology activity which I had my students complete prior to the project to gain understanding of dendrochronology and gather notes to assist them with their project.
