Trees and Forest Investigation

Following discussion on plant parts, dichotomous keys/important terms and measurement techniques use this activity as reinforcement for all three topics. Have students choose and identify one tree or shrub in the natural area, answer each question on the handout in a journal,  and include sketches for each. Wrap up: have students share one cool thing about their plant.
