Wood is a natural, attractive, versatile, and useful material that we use in thousands of ways. You may think you know many ways to use wood, but you might be surprised. A recent count listed over 5,000 products made with wood, and the list keeps growing. This four-page, full-color publication explores what wood is and how wood is used to produce lumber, paper, wood chemicals and much more. It is part of an educational series for youth. (2002).

The educational effectiveness of the flier can be evaluated through the use of one of two pre and post-experiences designed especially for youth. Each experience is one-page in length, specific to their flier topic, and employs a selection of simple testing formats, such as fill-in the blank, matching, ordering, or a "crossword puzzle." The same experience is intended for use before/after the flier is used as part of an educational activity.
