Fashionable forests

In this STEM activity pupils will investigate the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees in terms of their foliage and changes across the seasons. This activity includes a presentation outlining the differences between the two types of trees and the opportunity to create a ‘class tree’ where learners write their names on leaves and attach them to a paper representation of a tree on a notice board. The activity could be used as the main lesson activity but could also 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 activity supports the Year 1 Science curriculum and has been provided by the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology).
