Chopping Wood

On Wednesday the Primary Unit hosted Robb Grace, an arborist in Philadelphia.  Robb explained that arborists help keep trees healthy and safe by cutting them smaller or cutting them down.  He showed us his climbing harness, how to chop wood with an axe, and just how loud and smelly a chainsaw is! 

Our first and second graders were riveted throughout Robb’s visit and asked thoughtful questions about why cutting trees is a good thing, how heavy all those tools were, and how he climbed so high safely.
