Today we studied "our" tree for 2011, a Sweet Gum in our yard.
|See the oblong green gum balls just growing?|
On pg 626 of Handbook of Nature Study, there is a very fuzzy math problem for finding the height of the tree. But, I perservered, and figured that it is about 44 feet tall. The circumference is 8.12 inches (if I did the word problem right).
We also did the Spring Scavenger Hunt that Barb's daughter created, here. It was FUN, FUN, FUN! I am going to make one for each season, if she has not already beat me to it!

Tweet and See for the month of March. On the last day of the month, write your post about your bird list and come visit and hook up with Mr. Linky. This month has come in like a lion in my personal life, so I am sure all of you will beat me this month, so far, I only have 16 types of birds (I am hanging my head in shame). I hope to rally the troops this next week and go birdwatching. We have had so much rain this month is has also been hard to get out.
P.S.- New GIVEAWAY starting on Tweet and See day!
