Lesson Plan IV
Your world is more than people and buildings. The air, land, water, plants, and animals are part of your world. They are part of your natural environment. You can help make the environment better for you and all the other living things you share it with. Do the activities below to learn more about your environment.
Activity I. Adopt A Tree
Adopt a tree and learn as much as you can about it. Look at it. Touch it. Find out what kind of tree it is by studying its trunk and leaves or needles and then trying to find the same kind of tree in a guide to trees. Your library may have such a book. Watch how the tree changes through the year. Do animals live in it or use it in some way?
