Today, we went on our very own leaf hunt! It was exciting-all the students go their own baggies and we went around the school to various trees. I told them to look for different kinds, shapes, and colors of leaves. Here are some photos from our leaf hunt:
Later on in the day, we made a chart of the colors of the leaves we found. Every student chose one leaf from their bag to place on the chart.

In the math center, I put out a leaf matching game.
This week, we'll be sketching leaves and coloring them in with watercolors, creating 3D trees and making personal leaf collages.
