Angel Oak
Children (4-8yrs), Pre-teen (9-12yrs)
Charleston is a tourist’s delight because of its historical buildings. Apart from the man-made structures, you can also treat your eyes to a natural old beauty--the Angel Oak, an oak tree believed to be about 1400 years old. It was named in 1810, after a lady called Justis Angel. She was the wife of the owner of the land where Angel Oak stands. This tree is unique and attracts many visitors because of its old age and large size.

Why don’t you measure the ground on which the tree is spread? You just need to walk around the tree and collect some leaves on the way. You can do it alone. However, it is lot of fun if done along with others. Keep a paper, pen, and a ruler or tape measure with you. more...
