Our Leaves


Thank you so much for collecting so many great leaves and sending them in today!

In Math we looked at our pile of leaves and asked ourselves: “What Math lives here?”  We decided to sort our leaves by colour:

Then we ordered them by size:

We also used our leaves to make some art and learned about why leaves change colour in the Fall.

We’ll  continue our leaf explorations this week. They are pretty fascinating!

By the way, I gave the children a bit of “homework” today.  I had asked them if trees had all different kinds of leaves on them or leaves that were all the same.  Most of the children thought the leaves would all be different so I asked them to find a tree at home and check it out.  We will also be checking the leaves on our schoolyard trees to see!
