In dying, a tree plays an essential role in sustaining life around it. Here are some classroom activities to explore decomposition and how a fallen tree provides for other life in the forest.
Decomposers live off dead material and recycle nutrients into the soil for reuse by plants. These STEM activities teach students about producers, consumers, and decomposers.
In this book for grades K-2, join three young children and their Dad as they observe life in and around a stream.
Use this book with grades K-5 to explore how animals in different habitats use recycled material to build homes, protect themselves, and nourish their bodies.
Storybooks are a great way to capture children’s interest in the environment. As this story builds, it repeats, an excellent instruction technique for young children.
