This year’s Tower School sixth grade class has been busy. All of the shrubs that last year’s class had started growing in the School tree farm have been planted in the woods.
In turn, students have re-planted the school tree farm with more shrub and tree seedlings for next year. When it is time for these plants to leaf out in the spring, we will know how well our newly learned planting skills worked.
The class has also experimented with the process of using tree rings to determine the age of a plant, telling us when its seed first took root.
