How many types of leaves can you find?

Step 1

Gather the materials.

step 2

Visit the nearest neighbourhood park. (Check out nparks.gov to find out which parks are around you.) Pick up as many different types of leaves as you can find. At the end of your hunt, sort the leaves according to the shape of the leaves.

step 3

Wash and dry the leaves.

step 4

Apply the white glue on the leaves and paste them on the coloured papers.

step 5

Try to imagine what the leaves could become. For example, a leaf can be the wing of a bird, or you can make an alphabet collage using the leaves!
