Towering trees and bursting buds: a new ranger guided program all about trees for Kindergarten through 2nd grade
Linked closely to the Kindergarten, first and second science scope and sequence, students learn about what native trees and bushes do in each season of the year.Students make predictions about what's up with their tree in each season and test out their predictions about seasonal change along the Old Dune Trail near the Sandy Hook Visitor Center. Later students can input their data at the National Phenology Network and contribute to important scientific knowlege about climate change
