Trees are wonderful, cool, epic, fantastic and even legendary! Those are just some of the adjectives that Mrs. Donnelly's first graders used to describe trees in their "All About Trees" essays. To gather information, the children read several interesting books and articles, used online resources, observed real trees and engaged in several lengthy discussions on the subject. Here are just a few things that they learned and included in their writing:
- Trees are not only fun to climb but the leaves from the trees give us oxygen.
- Trees are homes for many animals
- Trees produce yummy foods that we eat like fruits, nuts and even cocoa beans.
Just ask one of Mrs. Donnelly's first graders about trees and they will have so much to tell you!
