Suggested Activities

Suggested Activities

Activity 1

Walk around your neighbourhood and nearby parks. Take pictures of coniferous and deciduous trees that are native to the BC landscape. (You can use a cell phone camera or a digital camera.) Take pictures of the leaves, bark, flowers, fruits and either a profile or full stand of the tree including the tree crown. Identify the trees. Create an image presentation that describes the species you saw and what ecosystem you explored. (Why were these plants located here?) If you wish, contribute these photos to the BC eFlora and eFauna website http://www.geog.ubc.ca/biodiversity/eflora/

Activity 2

Build a 3D model of a tree using Google Sketch Up, Geo-reference the tree in Google Earth where you may find the tree in British Columbia.
