Lesson Overview: In this activity, students learn to name many parts of a tree, describe their functions, and explain how some trees can survive fire or reproduce well after fire.

Lesson Goal: Increase students’ understanding of how trees function, how they may be affected by heat from wildland fires, and how they may be able to survive or reproduce well after fire.

Objectives:

  • Students role-play various parts of a tree as they form a living model of a tree.
  • Students can identify at least 10 parts of a tree.
  • Students can describe how some morphological traits help trees survive fire or reproduce well after fire.
