PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The environmental information stored in the growth rings of trees is extrapolated in this measuring tree rings activity. Students must precisely measure the width of each ring and correlate that with the given yearly precipitation data. A precipitation graph over the lifespan of the tree is constructed, showing how information from the past is stored in the rings of trees.

Two versions of custom graphic paper are included: with and without the axis labeled. There is also a follow-up worksheet for students who finish the activity early. The answer key is included. This resource also provides a simpler version of the activity (fewer rings and no graph) which allows you to differentiate the assignment. An answer key for the ring width is included that allows you to assess the accuracy of the student’s measurements.

Additional resources for an Ecology/Environmental Unit:
Biomes
Succession
