Ask the students to act out what happens to a tree when there is a
• Gentle breeze
• Violent storm
• Forest fire
• Squirrel running up its trunk
• Person plucking leaves and fruits
• Person carving on its bark
• Shower of rain
• Child climbing it
• Man watering it
• Person cutting it
This activity would be very effective if there was some music with it.

Students should observe trees during the year in as many of these conditions as possible.
