The story is about a group of First Graders and their teacher who wanted to make Earth Day an exceptional occasion. Mr. Rogers invited Farmer Jones to participate in the activities. Mr. Rogers placed the children into four groups, and each group will plant one kind of tree. Farmer Jones showed the children step by step on how to plant a tree. They planted pine, apple, elm, and dogwood trees. At the end of the tree planting activity, Mr. Rogers had a final event for the class to do. They worked together in their groups and completed a presentation, responding to a question. “If you could be a tree, what kind of tree would you be?”
