Match the Leaves

This is a sticky matching activity.  The leaves are drawn on a piece of paper and then covered with sticky contact paper, with the sticky side out.
The children search through the basket, pick a leaf and match it to the shapes.  I realized I have way too many leaves in the basket which made it difficult to find the different shapes.  Next time I’ll put a few of each shape.
This activity helped us look closely at the leaves and talk about how many points and parts each have.
I need to look for better contact paper as this one didn’t hold the leaves very long.
   The leaves were moved over to our trees and were perfect for raking.
