How Do Trees Survive the Winter?

It is winter in Maine and as I look through my living room windows I see a mix of leafless maple trees and green pine trees. What accounts for the differences in foliage on these trees? How do the maple, birch, and poplar trees in my yard survive the winter? Those questions and more are answered the Minute Science video, How do Trees Survive Winter?

After watching How do Trees Survive Winter? your students may have questions about the changing colors of leaves. The video below tackles that topic.

And if the talk of maple syrup makes your students wonder how it is made, take a look at Maple Syrup the Modern Way.
