We had a huge, shady oak tree in our front yard for many years. So the kids got to explore an oak tree life cycle up close.
When we had to have it cut down a few years ago, we were genuinely sad.
What’s fascinating, though, is that we still have tiny oak tree plants that shoot up in the middle of our bushes to this day.
So many of the tree’s acorns have been buried under the ground over the years that they keep germinating and growing, no matter what!
So I thought it would be cool to share a printable oak tree life cycle activity that you can use to teach students about how oak trees grow, even if you don’t have a live oak tree nearby.
This would be an excellent fall science lesson or an activity to place at science centers during this time of year!
