"Name That Tree", Project Learning Tree Pre K-8 Guide, Seventh Edition, page 244, Activity #68

Overview

Tree species can be identified by looking at  several different features:  leaves, bark, twigs, flowers, fruits, and seeds.  Even the overall shape of a tree can give clues to the tree's identity.  In this activity, your students will learn more about trees by identifying features.  Afterward, they can play an active game that tests their knowledge of different types of trees.
