Tree planting is the most popular Earth Day event and one of the most common activities people associate with helping the Earth. Before starting this activity, we took a walk around the front yard and took of tour of the different trees.
Each student was asked a series of questions. What is your favorite tree? Why do you like trees? How do trees help us? How can we help the world by planting trees? After that we planted to small saplings into a planter. Students each took a turn, digging a small hole. They then worked together to place the tree inside the hole, and finished up the job by covering it with earth.
