Reading Trees | Leyendo árboles


Gather around and read the story of a tree! Count the annual rings to see how old it is, learn about changes in the environment where it was growing and when it had slow growing year, or a giant growth spurt – just like people!

¡Reúnanse y lean la historia de un árbol! Cuente los anillos anuales para saber la edad del árbol, los cambios del ambiente en que ha crecido y los años en que creció lenta o rápidamente, como las personas.

This was originally developed for our Duke Energy Science Night program with support from the NC Arboretum, but we think it would be a great activity for your family to try at home - you'll just need to collect your own materials.

Activity instructions are available in English and Spanish.
