The Series 1 Activity Guide is divided into two sections: the first section is aimed primarily at students pre-kindergarten through third grade; and the second section is aimed at students grades three through six. However, most of the activities are suitable and adaptable for all age groups. Older students will certainly be engaged by Treetures while benefiting from the scientific content of the lessons. Younger children will enjoy making tree pretzels, tree art activities, and creating a tree dance.

The tree-related activities are carefully correlated to the Benchmarks for Scientific Literacy, the recommended standards for math, science and technology suggested by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

 Each activity in the PK-3 section includes a Treeture Tale. Treeture Tales are short stories that use the Treeture characters to introduce specific information about the many functions of the tree and the important role of trees in our environment. While covering the scientific concept of photosynthesis and tree parts, students are practicing basic skills, such as eye-hand coordination, sequencing, fine motor development, observing and recording. Using the Treetures as guides to tree education engages young children by stimulating their imagination. Treeture Tales open the door to the "real" magic of nature.

The third through sixth grade section emphasizes the importance of trees to our environment -- from problem solving to appreciation of the natural world. Third grade is viewed a pivotal year where the Treeture characters still hold an appeal for students, but students are also prepared for more solid scientific concepts. Also included in this section is a Treeture Talk Newsletter filled with jokes, games and review material.

Introduce the Treetures and their roles to your students. They will benefit from their mnemonic qualities and have great fun while learning about the world we live in.
