"Come along on a guided tour called The Secret Life of Trees.An animated oak tree is your guide through this cleverly produced slide show that unlocks the mysteries of trees. "Exploring the Secret Life of Trees is designed to help 3rd to 5th grade students gain an appreciation of trees, observe trees in their everyday lives, and develop an interest in discovering more about trees. It is intended for adults to work with children to explore the secret life of trees”. As they ‘turn the pages’ through the slide show, students can listen to a lively voice that reads all the on-screen text. Since all the text is read aloud, students younger than grade 3 could also benefit from the site even if they’re early readers. Some interactive activities are provided along the way, as students learn about the parts of the tree, their functions, and how trees make food and grow. The Teacher’s Guides spell all the learning objectives out for you, and provides some fun offline activities for the classroom. These activities include tried and true favorites like bark rubbing, but suggest some newer ideas, as well, such as taking different sized cans and paper tubes to make a model of the layers of a tree. This learning tool is produced by the University of Illinois, and is a great hands on site for kids because, navigation is straight forward, it’s informative, interactive and there are no banner ads. Flash Player is required to use the site."
