Our elementary students each collected the coolest, most interesting leaf they could find. Note: The youngest children did not know that clovers, palm fronds, and grasses were also leaves.
Inspired by John Muir Laws and the California Native Plant Society curriculum, Opening the World Through Nature Journaling – we traced, crayon rubbed, measured, and described our Florida leaves. We explored page 5 of the field guide. It was fun, and the results were amazing. Here are a few samples.
