[Fall Creek Hike on Google Maps | Smithclass Home Page | Projects | Previous Class Hikes]
|Mr. Humble from St.
Oswald's CE Primary in Burneside, Cumbria, UK visited our classroom to work
on the Woodlands Project. This science project focused on the major trees of
Missouri: oaks, maples, dogwoods, sycamores, and various evergreens. Mr. Humble
wanted to compare our native trees to those in England where his students have
been busy studying tree science.
The Missouri Department of Conservation was most helpful in the project, loaning us a large bin full of tree specimens, tools, books, posters, maps, videos and related tree science activities. In addition we used many great Internet sites and integrated it all into a week of intensive hands-on Learning Centers, presentations by Mr. Humble, and then culminated the project with an all-day hike to Fall Creek to study trees and leaves in nature.
