FREE WEBCAST EVENT for Arbor Day - You Can Make History: Trees, Trees, Trees

from Ohio History Connection

Program image

1st – 3rd-grade classes are invited to join us for a FREE webcast of You Can Make History: Trees, Trees, Trees as a part of our Arbor Day celebration. In this program, students are introduced to the concepts of history by Arbuckle, a 200-year-old turtle puppet. In Trees, Trees, Trees, students will learn how early settlers used trees in their daily life, why trees were so important, and the continued importance of trees in modern times. By comparing and contrasting their lives today with that of early American settlers, students will build a foundation of understanding for history and how things change over time.
