Many of the preschool students have been immersed in a study of trees and leaves! They learned and discussed the differences between conifer trees and broad leaved trees, learned the parts of a tree, labeled leaves, created leaf people and animals and participated in many nature walks. To wrap up our study, students chose to put on a performance showing the stages of a broad leaved tree!
Here is a video of students acting out the different stages of a tree.
First, students started out as small seeds.
After some sun and rain, our seeds grew into saplings.
After more sun and rain, the saplings grew into small trees.
After even more sun and rain, the small trees grew into large trees!
In Fall, a big gust of wind came leaving the trees bare for the Winter.
The sun and rain came back in the Spring, and the trees were full of leaves, again.
Students did a wonderful job!
