IntegriTree and Other Character Traits to Grow On
by Andrea Skyberg and the Milwaukee Environmental Sciences Academy
Doing the right thing, even when no one is looking
Just like a tree needs water, air, and nutrient rich soil to grow strong and proud, we need character traits like integrity, grit, stewardship, respect, leadership, and craftsmanship to grow into strong and beautiful creations of the earth. Combining the imagery of animals and trees native to Wisconsin, students worked with Andrea to create collage and design illustrations, while also writing about ways to strengthen character by looking to the trees for inspiration.
