Tree Dreams: Seeding the World with Dreams of Interconnection, One Tag at a Time
The Tree Dreams Tree Tagging Campaign seeks to educate students about the myriad of ways we are connected to the natural world, to each other and to our future. The campaign is a companion project to an eco-literary, coming of age novel by the same name and leapt from the pages of Tree Dreams: A Novel long before the book was completed.
Using a project-based, interdisciplinary lesson plan that incorporates science, storytelling and language arts, Tree Dreams gets kids outside, teaches environmental literacy, hones scientific observation, explores natural networks and promotes stewardship. When we recognize that we are interconnected, we remember that we are not separate. We understand that our actions have impact. And we treat each other and the world with care and respect. Tree Dreams tree tagging kits include tags, twine and Tree Dreams: A Field Guide, Vol. 2: The Nature of Interconnection – a small book of facts, quotes and ideas about stewardship and interconnection.
