We hope that you enjoyed your Slippery Elm pudding yesterday. Today, we will be learning about botany. If you go looking for Slippery Elm in your area, he will be about 80 feet tall and about 4 feet wide. His bark is reddish-gray to gray. The leaves alternate as you can see in the drawing above. In the spring, his flowers droop in clusters and are green in color. For more information and a picture that your young ones can label, turn to page 18.
