Program Description   In Trees, Trees, Trees, students will learn how early settlers used trees in their daily life, why they were so important, and the continued importance of trees in modern times. Students are introduced the concepts of history by Arbuckle, a 200-year-old turtle puppet in this highly interactive and engaging program that helps students build a foundation for an understanding of history and the effects of the passage of time and change through comparing and contrasting their lives today with that of early American settlers.
Program Format   1. The program begins with a participatory song.
2. Students discuss the passage of time.
3. Students compare and contrast their own lives with that of early settlers.
4. Students have ample time for questions and answers.
Objectives   After participating in this program, students will be able to compare and contrast how trees are used differently today than in the times of the early settlers. Students will also discover the importance of trees in maintaining our ecosystem. Students will also have a better understanding of how we can learn about history and record our own activities.
