Where do Christmas trees come from? – Cross-curricular lesson plan for KS2

Key Stage



Years 3-6

It’s that time of year again and there’s nothing like Christmas to engage young minds with activities that are fun, festive and full of opportunities for learning.

This one, based around the old favourite of Christmas trees, covers many different areas of the curriculum, including maths, science, history, art and design and RE.

We all love the smell of a real tree but who grows them and how? What challenges do Christmas tree growers face? What decisions will they have to make to get their trees to market?

What they’ll learn

  • Life cycle of a tree
  • What do trees need to grow?
  • Multiplication, division, estimation
  • Teamwork, communication, problem solving
