i-Tree Unit Intro: Tree Inventory - Map Your Schoolyard

Students walk around their schoolyard to conduct a Tree Inventory that assesses land usage and the existing trees. They note the different ways that the land is being used (i.e, residential, commercial, parks) and draw these on the map in their Lab Journal. They also draw all of the existing trees on their school’s block. In addition, students collect data about each tree (i.e., evergreen or deciduous, condition of tree and the impact on the area it is growing).

Nature Works Everywhere Gardens Activity Guide: Community

Students plan, create and participate in an outreach event to share some of the benefits of their school garden — educational, experiential, and material — with others in your community. Students gather data to evaluate the impact of their event, and use this data to develop ideas for increasing community engagement and multiplying the effect of their school garden. Students plan and execute a campaign to address a need, issue, or problem they have discovered in their community.
