Resources for Grades 6-8 Activity – Forest in the City

The trees in our communities provide many benefits: they improve air quality, store carbon, and conserve energy. Trees also enhance human health by reducing blood pressure, decreasing stress, and elevating attentiveness. In this activity, students conduct a survey to investigate the social and psychological effects of the urban forest.
