Returning your Seedlings
Students will be able to:
- Accurately describe the proper care of an oak seedling.
- Describe the elements that plants need in order to grow.
Time: 30 minutes
For each student:
Have students write letters to the next person who will be caring for the tree (many of the seedlings are transferred to a correctional center nursery). They should describe how they have cared for the seedling, and give instructions about its future care.
Students may write wishes for the future success of their seedlings on small strips of paper, fold them up and insert them into the planting soil.
Encourage students and their families to participate in community tree plantings. See sactree.com for more information about tree planting activities in the area.
