We began our leaf study when Bella asked me to go with her to pick leaves.
This was over a month ago. Our study lasted about a month.
|Here Bella has her bag of leaves and decided she needed to trace them in her notebook.|
|Both Bella and Sweet Boy did leaf rubbing.|
|Another week I presented the nomenclature - Parts of a Leaf for Elementary Age.|
|I made this Felt Work for Bella since we do not have a Leaf Puzzle. This is very simple, great for 3-5 year olds. I got this work free from Maybe Montessori.|
|On another week, we reviewed and got leaves to look at the different parts on real leaves.|
|On a bike ride around the neighborhood we picked lots of leaves and taped them to cards and worked on naming them. I wrote the names on the back.|
|On another week we used our leaves to sort by leaf margins, blade shape, and veins.|
