In preparation for Tu Bishvat we have been studying, creating, and learning about trees in many different ways. We took two field trips with the Prachim class this week. Walking around the neighborhood, we pointed out beautiful trees of all different kinds and learned the difference between "Etz," a full grown tree and an "Ilan," a young tree. We discussed what we appreciated about each of them and stopped periodically to give the trees hugs and thank them personally for all of the gifts they provide us! Some of those things included fresh air, wood, paper, and beautiful nature. We took deep breaths, gave thanks, and enjoyed our walk together outside!
