In Tree I.D., students use a laptop computer to identify leaves they find on a nature walk. Using a remote access connection, students can connect to a variety of Internet sites with leaf identification guides, and develop a working knowledge of native tree species. Students also have an opportunity to use their field research in mathematics class, and develop conclusions from their field data. Tree I.D. brings together nature and technology to spark studentsí interest in science.
