Learning about Trees
This lesson is about trees. Students will draw a tree and label the different parts such as root, truck, branch, leaves, and twigs.
This lesson is for fourth to fifth graders. It can be given to sixth graders, too.
First, you will have students draw a picture of a tree on their construction paper.
Then, you will have them label the different parts such as roots, trunks, branches, leaves, and twigs.
After that, you will have the students take their notebook paper and write about the different parts and the purpose of each part.
When they have finished their picture and their writing, they can staple the picture to the front of their notebook paper and submit them to you for grading.
You can grade the students on their accuracy of the information.
You can also grade them on sentence structure, spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
