Today the challenge is to look outside where you live and find a tree to hug! Then see if you can reach your arms all the way around the trunk. Get some help and some string and measure the circumference. Then make a sketch of a tree. I tried hugging a tree in my yard.
Do you see any tree liter?
Think about what the tree needs to survive? Is it a home to animals? What animals and other creatures might be found on or inside your tree?
