Every tree has a story to tell as does every person. First, teach students how tree rings tell the life story of a tree. Then help students tell their own life stories in the form of a Tree Ring Timeline. Students learn how to shade with pastel chalk while creating this unique and meaningful work of art.

This scripted activity is written in two parts. In the first part, group leaders teach students about tree rings using the worksheet "A Slice in Time" (answers included) and students begin their projects. In the second part, students learn how to use pastel chalk and add texture to their works of art. If time is limited, this 2 hour activity can easily be broken up into two 1 hour sessions or four 20-30 minute sessions. A photo of a completed project is included with the lesson.

Scripted lessons make it easy for new teachers or group leaders to teach without extensive training. Most required materials are common household items, common school items, or easy to find art supplies. To see materials lists, standards, and other helpful notes, please download the preview.
