Trees are a popular topic of nature study. In our experience, though, most studies tend to revolve around deciduous trees, while conifers sit quietly in the background. Not any longer!
This nature study guide is a jam-packed resource for learning all sorts of wonderful information about the might cone-bearing plants.
Do you know why conifers have thin, waxy leaves? Where are their seeds housed? Why don’t cone-bearing plants produce flowers or do they? What’s the difference between a conifer and an evergreen? These questions, and so many more, are answered through fun investigations.
During nature walks, you’ll complete in-depth investigations about all parts of conifers including cones, leaves, branches, sap and more. You’ll search for evidence of insects, animals, fungi and disease, and even have the opportunity to get some hands-on math experience!
Indoors we’ll keep you busy with ideas for dissection, making models, creating graphs, making crafts, mapping forest types, researching the logging industry, writing your own stories and so much more! Sixteen notebooking pages are included, too!
Even if you’ve completed an in-depth study of deciduous trees, there’s still a great deal to learn about the world of conifers. Don’t miss this study!
