For the next two weeks you will be observing a tree.
Pick a tree you see nearly every day (one at school or home is a good choice)
Choose at least 4 days to observe, but spread those days out. Ex. Monday, Thursday, Sunday, Wednesday. Make that observation last! Use it as your ten minutes.
Describe the tree. Use as much detail as possible. You will be using those observations for a later assignment.
Take a photo of the tree.
Draw a picture of the tree.
Tape one of its fallen leaves or needles into your notebook.
Find a poem about a tree, or compose your own. Here is one I found that inspired me:
Tree Song - George Ella Lyon
As a tree
and its crown
