Lesson summary

In nature, things can change so gradually we don’t notice. Suddenly, a bare tree might be covered in blossom, or have its green leaves turn orange. By choosing a tree to check in with every day, and draw what you observe, you will start to see how the gradual changes can be predicted.

They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources.
