Field Notes
We had a great time going outside exploring our environment. We ran into questions like " Is the is our tree ?" and problems like our string being tangled. We smelt the pine from the trees all around us. We walked around and heard birds as well as saw a lot of green. We were not surprised we didn't see our trees because we have looked for trees before and haven't found ours.

Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
We looked at our tree which is a black spruce. We looked for the color. The color which was supposed to be bluish-green. It was not bluish-green. This picture shows it is not a black spruce because it is not bluish-green.
Photo of my evidence.
The black spruces needles are supposed to be cone shaped. We looked at them and they were not cone shaped. They were actually flat. This is another reason why this is not a black spruce.
Photo of my evidence.
The black spruces needles are 2 cm long. We measured to see how long they were. They were not 2 cm long. They were less than 2 cm long therefore this tree is not a black spruce.

Great detective work. The tree you were looking at was a balsam fir.
