It is intended for adults to work with children to explore the wonders of trees. Visitors can choose from audio-enhanced or graphics- only versions of the guide. A Spanish translation is available."

Science Net Links - Lessons - Looks at Those Leaves
http://www.sciencenetlinks.com/lessons.cfm?Grade=k-2&BenchmarkID=5&DocID=215
"The website contains a lot of information on trees. However, this lesson will focus just on leaves, which are discussed in pages 1-14 of the online book. Your students can learn more about leaves and trees with Pierre using either the graphics only or audio enhanced version of this site. Have students navigate through pages 1-9 of the online book, stopping along the way to look at the leaves they collected. For example, when Pierre talks about narrow, wide, smooth, and jagged, have students look at their leaves with those characteristics in mind. With this kind of examination, students will learn about veins and blades, or the difference between a simple and a compound leaf. Once students start talking about the idea of seasons, they can go back to Trees are Terrific…Travels with Pierre and read through the pages about leaves changing during the seasons (starting on page 10, "Trees look different at different times..."). As they read through these pages, have them click on the tree to see the leaves change."

"Now that students have had some hands-on opportunities to examine leaves, it is a good time to introduce them to the site, Trees are Terrific… Travels with Pierre. Note: The website contains a lot of information on trees. However, this lesson will focus just on leaves, which are discussed in pages 1-14 of the online book. Your students can learn more about leaves and trees with Pierre using either the graphics only or audio enhanced version of this site.

With this kind of examination, students will learn about veins and blades, or the difference between a simple and a compound leaf. The crayon leaf rubbing activity outlined on this site is another fun way for students to see some of the details of leaves. You can also facilitate student thinking about the various ways in which they can group the leaves. You could use masking tape to make a grid on a tabletop, and put the contact paper leaves in a basket on the table. Encourage students to sort and classify according to the attributes they see. You can help them see that like leaves belong to the same kind of tree. This is just one way of grouping. Using the grid can also lead to some simple graphing."

"As part of this unit, students took a virtual tour of a tree. This interactive website was used to reinforce the parts of a tree and what each part of the tree does. It was also used to introduce other concepts about trees; changing leaves, seasons, shapes, etc. Because there is only one computer with Internet access in the classroom, students gathered around the computer on the floor while I clicked the next button. Pierre is the character that talks to the students. Through questions and discussions, students were able to participate in this portion of the lesson instead of just observing a website."
