This week we are studying spring trees in our natural sciences curriculum. A simple activity we enjoyed was a "spring bud scavenger hunt" - I cut clippings from about 10 different trees and shrubs in our yard and then had the kids run around and try to match each bud to the corresponding tree. We then tried to learn the names of those different plants and talked about why and how trees and shrubs grow buds. It was amazing to see how many different styles of buds were emerging!
