Happy Earth Day! April is a great time to focus on Arbor Day along with Earth Day. National Arbor Day is the last Friday in April, although many states observe Arbor Day on different dates according to their state’s best tree-planting time. You can find a map of Arbor Day dates across America (and around the world) from the Arbor Day Foundation.
Spring is perfect for botany studies in general, and a tree unit study would fit in perfectly with both Earth Day and Arbor Day.

Montessori Monday Link-Up
If you have some Montessori activity trays/lessons to share, please link up below. It’s fine to link up a post from your archives – and you may link up anytime during the week! Your post may be any Montessori-inspired activity or idea. It doesn’t need to be related to my Montessori Monday post.
Link up your exact post URL so that we can find your activity if we return to the linky at a later date (which I often do when I’m looking for activities for a roundup post). I publish the Montessori Monday post and linky at 6:00 a.m. EST each Monday and keep the linky open throughout the week.
Please place the Montessori Monday button (using the code from the right sidebar) in your post or put a link back to this post. Let’s use Montessori Monday to gain inspiration/ideas and to encourage each other!
