Learning About Leaves
In this lesson, you will take the students on a trip outside to collect different kinds of leaves. Then, you will return to the classroom and do their art project.
First, you will need a chart that has pictures of different leaves and names under the picture. You can talk to the children about the different kinds of leaves.
After that, you can go outside and collect different kinds of leaves.
Then, you will return to the classroom and have the children sit at their tables.
After that, you will pass out two to three sheets of paper to each child.
Then, the children need their crayons to use for the project.
Each child will put two or three different leaves between two sheets of paper. The second sheet is needed to protect the table.
After that, they will take their crayons and carefully color over the top paper so that the leaf patterns will show up.
Finally, you can label the leaves so they will know the different kinds. Then, you can have them put the pictures in their folders.
You can grade the students on their behavior outside when they collected the leaves and during their time working on the project.
