As the conversation continued, Austin also shared that while in North Carolina he had seen a place where lots of trees had been blown down in a hurricane. Jack shared that he had noticed on the drive to school a tree in the shape of the letter "Y." It inspired us all to do more noticing throughout the day.
Later at second meeting, we talked about questions we’d like to ask out tree expert when she comes to visit next Tuesday:
Jossie: I want to know why one tree got blown down in the wind and not the others?
Elle: Why do banana trees make another tree? And why do banana trees always make separate bananas? Why are some green and some are yellow bananas?
Lou Lou: Why does the rose tree fall down when it’s super duper windy?
Austin: When the trees fall and you cut limb off, it doesn’t even hurt the tree. They don’t even feel it. When the tree is alive, does it hurt? Why does the tree keep growing?
So many insightful questions and keen observations. Our next expert visit is going to be very exciting!
