More Tree Math


Use brown paint to paint a shoebox and its lid. Cut 8 slits (big enough to slide in a Popsicle stick) in the top of the shoebox lid. Label each slit with one of the number words one to eight. Cut out tree shapes from green construction paper and glue each shape onto a wooden Popsicle stick or tongue depressor. Number each tree with a different cardinal number from 1 to 8. Invite children to slide each numbered tree into the correct slit on the shoebox.
