Learning From Home:Day 15

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.

Look around your tree. What do you notice?
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?
You might even want to use the naturalist app to help you identify the tree you hug!  One of our friends shares what she found for species using the app.

Look here for today's National Geographic resource and here to read more about the Giant Sequoias and Redwood Trees.
