The Seed of a Tree - A Package
of Wonders (lesson plans and poster)
A Special Gift (story book)
Seven Steps to a Seedling (brochure)
Students will compare their personal growth with that of a tree and the
small boy who is the main character of a storybook entitled A Special
Gift. Exploration of tree growth continues through hands-on lessons
covering tree seed characteristics, parts and functions accompanied by seed-growing
activities and experiments. Students have the opportunity to collect seeds,
germinate and cultivate them to the seedling stage when they can be planted
in school grounds or in yards at home. This is a recommended activity for
turning those concrete jungle school grounds to green havens.
Ten per cent of all domestic waste is burned in waste incinerators. If the temperature in the incinerator is allowed to fall below 900°C, some plastics, pesticides and wood preservatives can produce dioxins which are extremely poisonous.
