Design Your Own Tree


First, you are going to try to design a tree to grow in the understory of a temperate forest. You can choose between heights of 8 meters and 33 meters. Next, you will choose the design of your tree's crown. You will be able to choose a flat, round, or a cone-shaped design. Finally, you will choose what type of leaves your tree has. You can choose between broad leaves and pine needles. After you have chosen the three characteristics of the tree, you will get to see a picture of your tree and learn whether it could survive in the understory of a temperate forest.

If your tree does not survive, you will be able to go back and try again. After this game you will be able to design trees that live in the canopy of a tropical rainforest and in a forest in Alaska.
Design your tree for the understory!
