Learn to plant and maintain strong, healthy trees that will thrive for generations.

How do we use Tree Products

Learning Objectives:

Students will be able to:

  • Identify tree products in their classroom and home.
  • Describe the importance and use of tree products in their lives.

Time: 30 minutes


For each student:

For the class:

  • Chart paper and markers for tree product chart.


Ask students to work in collaborative groups to survey the classroom for products made from trees (paper, toys, furniture, pencils, possibly the room itself) and to make a list of all of the tree products, both in the classroom and elsewhere, that they use regularly. After a few minutes, reconvene the class and create a class chart of tree products.

Distribute, read and discuss the Around the House Worksheet. Tell students that they will be exploring their households for tree-based products for homework.

The next day, review the homework and add additional items to the class list.
