Dryads diary

This STEM activity supports pupils to be able to describe how a deciduous tree changes with the season. This activity, which needs to be carried out over a school year, gives pupils the opportunity to record the changes in a deciduous tree within the school groups. Pupils could draw pictures, use photographs or write descriptions to document any changes. The activity could be used as one of several activities within a wider scheme of learning focussing on the use of science to understand the natural environment. This resource supports the Year 1 Science Curriculum and has been provided by the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology).
