Wednesday’s Walk in the Woods

This week while we walked in the woods we hunted for leaves.

I had previously took a walk through the woods collecting leaves.
Took them home, pressed them before laminating them on to cards.

The children were very intent on finding their leaf.
Once they found a leaf they’d place it on the card to see if it matched.
We looked for comparisons and talked about the shapes, size and colour.

Sometimes we’d find a leaf that had the same shape but it still looked different.  The colour had changed or it was curled or was missing a few pieces. 
Was it still the same kind of leaf?

We ended at the big rock. 
They love to climb and slide on it as much as they like to play at the playground.
