|Everyone demonstrating the different parts of a tree.|
On Wednesday, we discussed climate change and forests. Linda from the SNRE (School of Natural Resources and the Environment) provided a lab on plant growth. We learned how to collect and graph real data to determine the age of a tree and the relationship between tree growth and climate determinants. We also spent sometime classifying leaves. Using what we found in the Arboretum on Tuesday, we created leaf art!
Thursday we talked about recycling. We completed a recycle race where we learned which items can be recycled and which items cannot. The object of the recycle race was to take a pile of "trash" (it was all clean!) and place them in the correct bin. We then discussed our reasons for putting certain items in the recycling bin or non-recycling bin. We determined recycling vs. non-recycling based off what the City of Ann Arbor recycles. We also made recycled art!
We had a great week at camp this week learning about Ecology and exploring the Museum and other parts of the U-M campus. We hope you will join us next year!
