The perfect thanks for the nature-loving teacher -- plant a tree in his or her honor. You can ask permission to plant a new tree somewhere on school grounds or use a website like the Arbor Day Foundation or The Trees Remember to have a tree planted in a national park in their honor.
Parents: Have your child pick a date and time during Teacher Appreciation Month to meet their teacher at the newly planted tree every year. Teachers love to stay in touch and hear what their previous students are up to.
