Moriah Kindergarteners Adopt a Tree

As the season of fall is upon us, the Moriah kindergarten students have been discussing the outdoor foliage and how the plants develop and evolve through the seasons. They studied apples and apple trees, and will be learning about pumpkins and pumpkin vines. They decided it would be a great idea to select one tree on the Moriah grounds that would be “their tree,” and chose a lovely red-fruited dogwood. The students sat down and observed their tree. Using paper, clipboards and colored pencils, the children sketched and wrote about what they saw. They noted the shape of the trunk, branches, and roots, and that there are beautiful red berries adorning the tree. The children plan to visit their tree again soon, make close observations, and add another entry to their records. The students look forward to accumulating data on their tree’s changes throughout the seasons.
