The Tree Lady is a unit that includes lessons in Social Studies (Geography and History), Language Arts, Art, Applied Math, and Science. And like other Five in a Row Volume 4 style units, there is a Bible Character Supplement lesson, the Cookbook section for this unit. and also a story disk is included. This unit draws its lessons from a book called The Tree Lady: The True Story of How One Tree-Loving Woman Changed a City Forever.written by H. Joseph Hopkins and illustrated beautifully by Jill McElmurry.
This story is full of excitement and inspiration as Kate Sessions uses her knowledge, determination, hard work, and love of nature to create a stunning achievement –Balboa Park in the city of San Diego!
2015 marks the year long Centennial Celebration of Balboa Park, so this is a great time to find this remarkable story and enjoy reading about the current events surrounding the book, as well.
This study is a full length Five in a Row Volume 4-style unit, though it can also be adapted to younger students. This is a digital file that will be emailed to you. You may view it on any device and print the pages as often as you need to.
