Great to introduce nature and trees.
A tree is indeed a plant. It¿s the biggest plant that grows and it grows from seeds. There are a lot of different kinds of trees. The main focus is an apple tree. Seeds from the apples fall to the ground and through the fall and winter the seeds are covered by leave, soil, ice, and snow. The seed beings to grow when spring comes, and the rain and sunshine come out. Within seven years, the tree has grown and begins to blossom. Green apples begin to grow and they grow slowly. They grow through the spring and summer and fall to the ground when they are ripe.You cannot see the roots of the trees because they are underground and grow like the branches. Roots do a lot for the tree. When fall comes and it is close to winter, the work of the leaves is done. They turn yellow and brown then fall to the ground. When it is winder, the tree looks dead, but it is not. Spring comes again and the whole process starts all over again.
