We took the last couple of days to get caught up on Science.
Yesterday, we went on “A Leaf Hunt”.
It was such a fun activity.
I started off by asking the kids to “Find a leaf that_________.” I gave the clues as to what kind of leaf I wanted them to find. “Find something that sends nutrients through the tree.” It also helped them practice listening for descriptive words, and listening skills. After finding a few leaves this way, they wanted a turn. Each kid gave clues as to what types of leaf everyone else needed to look for.
We collected our findings in a “nature bag”.
It was pretty late in the day, so when we got back home we set them aside for today.
Each kid picked out a leaf, today, and they created a leaf rubbing art. We talked about the parts of a leaf. Then, they labeled the parts of a leaf.
They ended up using different things they collected to create and build.
They had a ton of fun, and this activity kept them busy for quite a while.
