Growing Together with the Treetures. Activity Guide. Series 1.
Schnell, Bobbi; Blau, Judith H.; Hinrichs, Jennifer Judd
This activity guide is designed to be used with the Growing Together program. Tree-related activities are correlated to the Benchmarks for Scientific Literacy, the recommended standards for mathematics, science, and technology suggested by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The Treature Educational Program is dedicated to teaching children about the important role tree planting and tree care plays in keeping the environment healthy. Treatures are a community of small, imaginary tree characters who help relay the scientific concepts behind the growth and function of a tree. Learning the names and jobs of the Treature characters helps reveal the functions of the tree and how each process is dependent on the other. The guide is divided into two sections. The first section is aimed primarily at students in pre-kindergarten through third grade. The second section is aimed at students in grades three through six. However, most of the activities are adaptable for children of all ages. (DDR)
