This is a fun game to play with children after you've read the book!

Tree 20 Questions

Resources

● Blank visitings cards

● Cellotape

● Markers

● Timer

How to play

● Write down the names of trees and plants on blank visiting cards.

● Divide the group into batches of 4-5 children each.

● A volunteer from the group will come up and choose a card without seeing what’s written on it

● Stick the card to the volunteer’s forehead without letting them see the name of the tree.

● The volunteer returns to their group. Everyone else in the group can see the name of the tree.

● The volunteer then begins to ask questions about their plant. The team can only answer yes or no. Egs Do I produce an oil? Am I fruit bearing? Do I grow in India? The volunteer has to guess which tree he is in 20 questions or in under 90 seconds.

Here's a fun experiment to try after reading the story!

Hopping Corn

You’ve heard about pop corn what about hopping corn? This experiment makes corn hop up and down repeatedly in a container for over an hour. It’s so much fun to watch!

Resources

• A clear glass container

• Popping corn

• 2 1/2 – 3 cups of water

• 2 Tbsp. of baking soda

• 6 Tbsp. of white vinegar

• Food colouring (optional)

What to do

● Fill the glass container with water and add a couple drops of food colouring.

● Add baking soda and stir well until it has completely dissolved.

● Add a small handful of popping corn kernels.

● Add the vinegar and watch the corn start to hop up and down!

This is a terrific way to work on measurement concepts, listening skills, and practising patience too!

The science behind it

When the baking soda and vinegar combine, they react to form carbon dioxide (CO2) gas. The gas forms bubbles in the water which circle around the corn kernels. The bubbles lift the kernels up to the surface and when they get there they pop and the kernels sink again. The “hopping” continues until the vinegar and baking soda have finished reacting.
