A Wish to be a Christmas Tree

Evergreens! Coniferous Trees! Fraser Firs! Balsams! Spruce and Pines! Mrs. Crosby’s students have been learning all about Christmas trees in their unit centered on the book “A Wish to be a Christmas Tree”. They learned about the life cycle of a tree, where the seeds come from and the parts of trees. The final lesson involved students constructing a ‘tree’ and measuring it using standard and nonstandard units of measurement.
Merry Christmas! And as the Old Scotch Pine learned from his woodland friends in a “Wish to be a Christmas Tree”, “…it wasn’t as important to be a Christmas tree, but to always be the best friend you could be.”
