Lifecycle of a Tree Educational 40-Pack
Many species to choose from
Next Generation Science Standards were used to develop this excellent classroom project for life science teachers. The Classroom Pack is 100% guaranteed and includes everything needed for a fantastic, hands-on class project in germinating trees from seed! Appropriate for a wide range of grade levels, from emergent readers through middle school and beyond.
MATERIALS: The Classroom Pack includes 40 individual, self-contained Student Grow Kits; 40 Full-color Student Handbooks which provide a detailed overview of the life cycle of a tree, plus step-by-step germination instructions which lead students easily through the entire germination process using their Grow Kits; a Teacher's Guide; Tree Species Information; plus convenient Name Labels for students to use to identify their Grow Kits. The Classroom Packs are available stocked with various tree seed. We've pre-selected four great trees that grow in wide ranges across North America: Jerusalem Pine, Colorado Blue Spruce, Ponderosa Pine, and Red Maple. Choose the species best suited to your region. If you have a specific tree in mind, please contact Jonsteen. We may be able to stock your classroom kits with an alternative tree species of your choice.
TEACHING OBJECTIVE: The objective of this project is for students to explore, observe, and experience the birth of a tree (tree seed germination), to recognize the properties of a germinating seed, and to understand this phenomenon as part of a system — the life cycle of a tree — which is influenced by specific environmental conditions found in nature. Further, the project is designed to engage students through an active learning experience, to excite them with a growing knowledge and understanding of the natural world around them. The Grow Kits used in this project, along with the excellent Student Handbooks, have a rich explanatory power, and offer students a meaningful learning experience, which is fun, engaging, and intended to lead to a life-long appreciation of trees, natural processes, and life science. Perhaps best of all, this project will provide each student with a live tree with which they can be involved for the rest of their lives!
