In recognition of Arbor Day, first grade students from Babylon Elementary School recently took part in a holiday-appropriate nature activity with assistance from STEAM instructor Emily Moran. Prior to venturing outside to study the trees in the school’s courtyard, the students were asked to write in their STEAM journals and brainstorm as to why saplings are different from adult trees. Upon analyzing the trees outside, the students determined that adult trees are taller, have more leaves, and often show signs of wear from the natural elements of nature.
