Students will learn the difference between evergreen (conifers) and deciduous trees. Students will learn how long it takes conifers to grow, particularly some types of firs and spruce, and what a large agricultural commodity these trees are. We’ll also talk about what agricultural commodities are. We will learn about poinsettias, where they originated from, that the colored part is actually a leaf not a flower, and that National Poinsettia Day is December 12th.
