"Arbor Day is April 28. Celebrate this year with Dr. Arbor's great site for grades 6-8. In "Tree Basics," kids will learn about how trees grow and store nutrients; in "Dr Arbor's Laboratory," they'll learn how to identify trees from twigs, not leaves. The "State Tree Gallery" contains a photo of every state's official tree. In addition, kids can look up tree terms in the "Glossary" and find related sites in the "Resources" section. There is also a "Teacher's Guide" with suggested activities and Arbor Day facts that will be useful for homeschoolers as well."
