A fun, hands-on, environmental education experience designed for students in Kindergarten to Grade Six, the Grow-a-Tree Project is a unique classroom activity that introduces young students to important grade-appropriate topics in science, ecology, social and environmental studies. The program consists of two parts: During the hands on component, students have an opportunity to plant, germinate and grow their own tree seedling. The accompanying grade-appropriate workbook provides children with a wealth of activities and information, presented in a fun, “comic-book” format that is as fun as it is educational.

Curriculum Design and Validity
The “Grow-A-Tree” Project was developed in coordination with educational consultants to ensure the validity of the project’s children’s activities and assure their usefulness in the classroom.
