Tree Cookie Kit

Rental Fee: $50*

In this kit, students can explore the internal structure of a tree and learn about the seasonal growth cycles recorded in the tree rings. Trace your fingers along the concentric growth rings and discover the tree’s history. The wider the ring the better the growth that year. This kit provides a way to look inside a famil-iar feature of the landscape and understand the functions behind its appearance.
