Lovely Leaves

Fall is the perfect time of year to discover the variety and splendor of trees by identifying some leaves.  The next time you go out on a walk, take a camera and a container to capture some of the beauty of Autumn before it disappears. You can take photos of fallen leaves and then go back and identify them or collect some specimens to examine later as well.  When you’re finished being a Botanist, you can:

1.  Make collages by arranging various leaves onto a large sheet of paper and then taking photos of them.  You can enlarge the photo and make place mats, posters or the like to hang anywhere. 

2.  Do leaf rubbings by putting a clean sheet of paper over some leaves.  Press the side of a crayon over the paper and watch the leaf details emerge.
