Write or draw:

1. Who lives in your backyard trees? Describe their daily life.

2. Pretend you are the size of an insect and you take a ride on a leaf. What insect are you? Where will you go? Will you travel on the wind or ride down a stream? What kind of leaf is it?

3. Imagine that you climbed the tallest tree you’ve ever seen. The higher you climb the more you notice a fantastic world that you could only imagine before. What do you see in this amazing world?

4. Imagine you could build the ultimate tree house. Describe it.
