Can trees tell stories? You bet they can and this beautiful and informative Wooden Tree Ring Puzzle and Learning Set from Mirus Toys will help you listen as they talk.
This interactive learning tool is ideal for any young naturalist and budding arborist and will add an enduring element to any unit of study on trees.
This set explores both the anatomy of a tree trunk and the story of the tree's life. Using botany terms like pith, heartwood, sapwood, inner bark, outer bark, cambium, xylem, phloem and medullary rays, children can identify the functions and structure of various parts of the tree's trunk.
By looking closely at the tree rings, children can learn secrets from the tree like its changes from youth to late growth, how it survived fires and drought.
The rings pull apart so investigators can get up close and personal and feel the different parts of the tree before they reassemble the puzzle.
With included wooden labels, this set will encourage a tactile and interactive view of a particular grandfather tree. Kids can then take that knowledge into the woods to explore other trees to learn their amazing stories!
