Product Description
This 8-page product provides you with 4 different signs to facilitate "tree stations," a recording sheet {2/page} that fits perfectly in a composition-sized science notebook, and lesson ideas on extending tree stations with your students.

I do tree stations with my 1st graders to address Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) 1.10B: "Identify and compare the parts of plants."

I do this lesson after my students and I have thoroughly reviewed stems, leaves, and roots; it is used as an extension activity in my room. It is for this reason that the leaf station is not included on the recording sheet, although students are asked to do a leaf rubbing and label the veins and stem during their time at the leaf station.

The stations included in this product are as follows:
- tree cookie station
- leaf station
- cone station
- bark station

For this lesson, you will need the following:
- tree cookies (or pictures of them -- an example picture is on the tree cookie station sign)
- pine cones (I got these from my own yard and re-use them year after year)
- bark (I had my husband scrape some off a tree in our backyard and re-use it)
- leaves (I pick these up off the ground on our playground)
-magnifying glasses

These stations are all about exploring the parts of trees. Some stations ask students to observe certain parts of the object, other stations ask students to put the object under a piece of paper and rub over it with a crayon before labeling, and other stations ask students to use their senses to describe the object. I typically give my students 5-10 minutes at each station, depending on how interested they are.

Please note that this product is NOT editable, but you could always cross out portions you didn't want the students to do. :)
