Lesson Excerpt

How many trees did you see on your way to school today? How many different kinds? How tall was the tallest tree? Do you know the names of any of them?

Did you know that the tallest tree in the world is 370 feet tall? If you could walk up the trunk of that tree, you would have to take about 220 steps to reach the top of it!

The widest tree in the world is 37 feet wide. That's the length of about four cars! It would take about 30 first-graders holding hands to give that tree a giant group hug!

Did you know that some trees live for several thousand years? (continued...)
