Lesson Plans

Turn your Schools Tree Day actions into valuable classroom learning! We have teamed up with Cool Australia to create high quality curriculum toolkits for early learning, primary and secondary teachers.

Teachers have FREE access to lesson plans, digital worksheets, digital toolboxes, Smartboard lessons and a host of other resources to teach lessons that will last a lifetime.


NEW LESSON - Me and My Tree - Science & English (Years 2-3)

Every person has a significant tree in their life. Students use language as a vehicle for exploring trees and their place in the world. This lesson starts with a literacy hook! Then, it takes students from the classroom outdoors for a guided mindfulness session, connecting students with the world around them. Students are encouraged to do a poetry exercise where they are asked to write about a significant tree in their life: "Me and My Tree."

Story Trees (Years 4-6)

Every tree has a story to tell. This lesson instructs students on how to view trees as a guide to story structures and how to use trees and wildlife as characters in stories from their local environment. They use trees as both metaphor and subject for crafting a narrative, using their creativity and their connections to native wildlife.

MINDFULNESS (Years 3-4)

This past few years has been particularly difficult, with stressful events including the bushfires and COVID-19 taking a toll on our mental health and wellbeing. This Schools Tree Day mindfulness lesson will be all about regenerating our minds. Kids will go on a walk in the forest and think about nature, seasons, and how trees change over time

Trees and The Elements (Years 4-6)

Trees give us oxygen, store carbon, provide us with materials and support wildlife. To provide these services, trees rely on a range of environmental elements to survive and thrive. Students will investigate the relationship between trees and elements and also create a poster showing the interactions between trees and air, light, fire, earth and water.
