Pine Cone Study

Comparing pine cones - no two are alike!

Where do our Christmas trees come from? Students across grade levels learned about the life of a Christmas tree, as well as the great diversity of conifers and their cones. From local spruce to Oregon sugar pines, students had the opportunity to compare and contrast a wide variety of beautiful cones of all shapes and sizes. The conclusion? Just like snowflakes, evergreen cones have such magnificent, eccentric, and geometric beauty to them...no two are alike!
