    A valuable resource, this National Arbor Day Foundation lesson plan implemented for "5th Grade Science and Visual Arts Standards" in California---but any state can adapt these ideas to fit their core standards. It is a great tool for teaching science and the importance of Arbor day and help students appreciate how important trees and plants are to our health and planet. Enjoy!
