Today I’m sharing some of the many tree-inspired activities around the web.  There are ideas for science investigations, literacy and math activities, book-related projects, and many terrific crafts and paintings to help you put together your own tree activities for the kids in your life. Some of the posts are seasonal, but they can often be adapted easily to meet your needs. I hope you enjoy reading all of these posts as much as I did!
