This is a great activity that turns into a beautiful bulletin board! I hang my trees outside my classroom and above my white board so the students see them all day long!
This activity comes with a tree print out and leaf print outs. I print my trees on brown paper, but you could also have the students color them. I also pre cut all the leaves for the students and print them on green paper (or orange yellow and red-depending on the time of year).
The students are given a root word, suffix, or prefix and they must identify words that go with their "root." Then, they put the words on the leaves and put them around their tree.
Every year it turns out BEAUTIFUL and the students love coming up with words ard seeing their completed trees.
