Are all leaves the same?

Activity:

Look for leaves on the way home. Notice, where they are – on a tree, a bush, a plant or maybe they are on the ground. Ask a parent if you can collect some, or take a picture on their phone. See how many different kinds of leaves you can find.

Questions to ask:

What shape is the leaf? (Heart, oval, triangle or square).

What is the edge of the leaf like? (Straight, pointy, ragged).

Is the leaf bigger than your hand?

If there are any holes in the leaf, what might have been the cause? (Insects, worms).

Safety Tip: Ask an adult before picking up a leaf. It could be poison ivy!
