Trees Are Cool
Today the girls prepared a large tree collage where they specified the different parts of the tree such as the leaves, the trunk and the roots. They also coloured some leaves on which they wrote the benefits that derive from a tree and how important trees are in our environment. Each girl read these benefits out in class and then stuck the leave on the tree. They also stuck pictures of different insects of whom also benefit from a tree since it gives them protection, shelter and also food to eat. Afterwards, the girls were divided into groups and each group was named after a particular type of tree. The type of trees the girls chose were cherry blossom trees, gum trees and palm trees. One of the students coloured the dice and the group with the most points won the game. This game continued to emphasis the benefit of trees in our environment and also to be aware of the potential harm that can be done to trees.
