Trees in locality in Forest – Our Life – Class 7 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Forest – Our Life

Activity Name: Trees in locality in Forest – Our Life

Activity Description:

In this activity, the participants will explore their local surroundings to observe and document the number and types of trees present. They will also identify the names of the trees they know and determine if any of these tree species are also found in the forests of their state.

Required Items:

  • Notebook/journal
  • Pen/pencil

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Prepare your notebook or journal for recording observations.
  2. Go for a walk or a short survey around your locality, such as parks, streets, school campus, or nearby green areas.
  3. As you walk, pay close attention to the trees in the vicinity.
  4. Note down the number of trees you observe and take note of their different types. If you know the names of any trees, write them down as well.
  5. If you come across a tree whose name you don’t know, consider taking a picture of its leaves, bark, and overall appearance. You can later use plant identification apps or books to find out the names of these trees.
  6. Once you have documented the trees in your locality, research and find out the names of any unidentified trees.
  7. Now, using books or online resources, find information about the tree species present in the forests of your state.
  8. Compare the list of trees in your locality with the trees found in the state’s forests.
  9. Analyze whether any of the trees observed in your locality are also present in the state’s forests.

Experiment Observations:

  • Total number of trees in the locality.
  • Names of known tree species observed.
  • Names of unknown tree species (either identified later or remained unidentified).
  • Comparison of trees found in the locality with those present in the state’s forests.

Precautions:

  1. Ensure that you are walking around the locality safely, away from busy roads, and following all safety guidelines.
  2. Do not disturb or harm any trees or plants during the observation process.
  3. If you’re not sure about the name of a tree, do not guess; instead, take a picture and later identify it using reliable resources.
  4. If you are collecting any leaves, fruits, or other parts of the trees for identification, do so responsibly and without causing damage.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

This activity helps raise awareness about the trees in one’s immediate environment and their ecological importance. By comparing the local tree species with those found in the state’s forests, participants can understand the interconnectedness of urban and rural ecosystems. It also encourages an interest in local flora and highlights the importance of preserving and protecting native tree species.
