8.4 Observe some real trees (grades: all)
Organize an outing to an arboretum, botanical garden, park or forest to observe trees. Plan the outing in advance.

8.5 Become a Brundtland green school (grades: all)
Why not take the opportunity to become a green school by joining Quebec’s Établissements verts Brundtland (EVB) , if you school hasn’t already? You could also start corresponding with a green school to find out how it works and what kinds of projects are ongoing.

To maintain students’ interest and promote concrete actions, it’s best to extend activities throughout the school year and point up any positive actions performed by individuals or groups in the class. For instance, you can print the EVB butterfly, laminate it and hang it in the classroom. Each time the students complete another EVB activity, you can write it down with an erasable marker. You can also use adhesive putty to affix a symbol to the butterfly representing an activity (e.g. a heart to represent the ‘cooperation council’).
