Tree Ring Worksheet for Forester Activity Badge

Requirement 6 for the Webelos Forester activity badge is

Make a poster showing a tree’s growth rings or examine the growth rings of a tree stump. Explain how the rings tell its life history.

When I did this with DS’s den, I made a requirement aid to help them with this. Use the link below to download and print it. It shows a sample diagram of tree rings to help them make the poster. We looked at an actual stump also, but the tree rings on the stump we examined weren’t well defined, so this helped them understand the concept.

    Thank you so much! I teach science in an after school program for a title one school. We are having a science fair and I would like to use this sheet and incorporate it in with a tree ring science center, where students will learn about tree rings, examine a real tree cookie, and count the tree rings.
