Resources for Teaching with i-Tree Activity 1 – Tree Benefits and Identification

Students become aware of the many products we obtain from trees, how we all depend on trees in our daily lives, and the value that trees provide to communities and the environment. They also learn the features of trees that are used in identification and practice identifying trees using guides and free mobile apps. Finally, students are introduced to the i-Tree benefits calculator.
