Tree Journal Classroom Craft

The Crafty Classroom has a great craft activity that helps students understand many aspects of trees.

Using a brown paper bag, students create a small book that serve as a "tree journal."  On one page, they use construction paper and cut-out designs to illustrate the roots; other pages reveal leaves, tree rings, etc.  Alternating pages include info students have researched about trees.  Check out the link for examples and step-by-step instructions.

This is a first-rate project or fall, and a way to combine research with a cool craft.  Try it!
