Field Notes
At first, we were sad because it was really cold out. But, we were happy at the end because we found what we needed to find. We hear people talking and we smell the perfume on our bodies. There also were cars going by.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
The bark looks like the big tree. We thought it was the tree because it was shiny and red like the tree on the paper. I think that it is a little baby of the big tree because it looks just like he big tree but just a lot smaller.
Photo of my evidence.
This branch is little but we looked at the tree and it showed two buds next to each other. The buds were opposite from each other and on the tree the buds were opposite. Thats how we know or think we know this is the correct tree.
Photo of my evidence.
We looked all on the ground at the base of the tree and we found the leaf that matches on our ID card.

Your picture are just right for I'd. Opposit buds, red twigs, 3lobed, serrate leaf, but keep in mind, leaves blow around so that may not be from that tree.

Good Job!!!! I really like your pictures and your information to go along with it!!
