Anticipatory Set

As students entered the classroom, their eyes were immediately drawn to the display of a tree cookie. The tree cookie was from an 80 year old tree and measured 104 inches in diameter. Students had time to touch and smell the cookie as well as observe the ring structure.
The tree cookie was also placed under a video flex-cam so that students could observe a magnified view of the structure of the rings.
