Product Description
Students will observe a tree for the entire school year (although all twelve months are included in this package). They will record the temperature, draw a detailed picture, and write an "I noticed" sentence (or paragraph). This product would be nicely complemented by my Daily and Seasonal Changes (Grade 1) and/or Growth and Changes in Plants (Grade 3) writing prompts.

You can observe a tree through the window in the safety of your classroom walls - or take the kids on a fun, exploratory nature walk if your school property affords it. Awesome for teachers and schools who are moving toward a Reggio Emilia-inspired approach and/or are looking to incorporate more nature and outdoors discover into their programs.

This product includes:
- "I see, I think, I know, I wonder" graphic organizer
- 12 "I noticed" documentation sheets with primary printing lines
- 12 "I noticed" documentation sheets with regular lines
- a blank documentation sheet with regular lines for each month
- 1 blank documentation sheet with box for date and temperature
- 3 choices of bulletin board headers (with a pale green background): "Our Tree Inquiry," "Our Tree Study," and "Our Tree Observations"
- 3 choices of title pages (titles as listed above)
- plain primary printing sheet with sentence starter
- plain lined sheet with sentence starter
- plain lined sheet without sentence starter
- 5 pages of word wall words (black and white)

Read about how I began my tree inquiry and observation by reading my blog post here!

This study fits in well with Ontario's FDK and Grades 1, 2, and 3 curricula. It's good for giving purposeful practice in covering:
- measurement (temperature)
- life cycles (of a tree/of plants)
- seasonal changes
- writing non-fiction texts
- drawing skills
