As a family, choose one special tree to observe from one season to another- either apple tree or otherwise! If you’re a city dweller, simply choose a tree from your favorite park that you can visit regularly. Encourage your child to sketch or photograph the changes that he or she observes throughout the year. Keep your eyes out for natural helpers, such as earthworms, bees, and butterflies!
