Week of April 25th!

April – The Study of Trees!

For the next 4 weeks, students will learn about trees.  As we investigate this topic, we will work together to find the answers to our theme questions.  Some of the questions include: What food comes from trees?  Who lives in trees? Who takes care of trees?

Some of the books we will be reading this week are:
