During this school year each child in 2a observed one tree near his or her home. They each chose one in September when the trees were mostly green. A few weeks later they were able to collect the brown leaves. It is amazing how many different shapes and sizes there were. Nothing much happened to the trees after that until Spring came. 2a took a great deal of photos with buds, flowers and young leaves. Alexander even found a bird’s nest in his chosen tree. That was exciting.
