Using Decision-making and Entrepreneurial Thinking
Today is Arbor Day! Use the image above from ArborDay.org, to initiate conversation about Arbor Day. Ask: What do you see? What do you think the people are doing? What do you wonder?
Once students have some wonder questions, they can conduct online research to learn more about Arbor Day and the importance of trees in our world.
Learn about different types of trees with the Arbor Day Tree Identification Tool.
Check out Carly's Kids Corner for some activities to help children connect with nature and learn more about trees.
Enjoy the story of Curious George, as he discovers the importance of trees. Before you read, ask students to predict what the story will be about, based on the cover. During reading, ask students to draw or record things they learned about trees. After reading, have students create a poster, song, or story about what they learned about trees.
Draw a tree. Photograph a tree. Create a social media post about trees. Encourage your students to create artwork about the beauty of nature and ways in which we can work together to become more sustainable in our everyday lives.
