Free Educational Activity: The Big Tree

Last week we went on a walk in the 4H park with Grandma Crum.  The boys were excited to see a giant tree that had been cut down.  It was fun to examine the tree with them!  It gave us free education as well as nature exploration!

Mr. Crum explained to the boys that the rings help us know how old the tree is.  

He counted the rings, "1, 2, 3, 300"  I don't think he counted quite right.

The boys enjoyed climbing on many of the felled logs.  They also loved dancing on the large tree stump that was left over.
