How Tall Is A Redwood?

| 1 Comment

When Mr. and Mrs. Moore came to visit last week, we saw this picture in one of the books they brought us. It was Mrs. Moore standing in the middle of a redwood! We were looking at her in person, so we knew she was a normal size person, so how big are these trees?

After they left we grabbed a 100 foot tape measure and headed outside to do a little of our own investigating.

We are standing at our starting point, and 367 feet away where you see the arrow pointing, is the rest of our class. You can’t even see them. That is amazing a tree can be so tall!

What is something you have seen our learned about in nature that made you say “wow!”
