 Library Learning Patch - Children Discovering Nature

Week 16 - Trees-Part 2

This week we broadened our knowledge of  trees. The children learned that our state tree is the pecan. It can grow over 100 feet tall. The nuts provide food for many animals, as well as for us. The wood is very valuable. When identifying a tree, we can look at  the shape of the tree, the leaves and the bark. The children examined  several trees near the library, comparing the differences. 

Our garden is flourishing. We harvested tomatoes, peppers and squash today.

We like to harvest!

Today's harvest

Our efforts are being rewarded. It is fun to grow our food!!
