    Print out two copies of the leaf matching cards, cut them out, and laminate. Children use visual discrimination skills to match the leaves that are the same. Since these are photographs of real leaves and children are using observational skills to notice differences in nature, I added these cards to our science center.

    Leaf People: Make this craft after an outdoor scavenger hunt or a class "hike." I will do this with my first graders during our camp week at the end of the year. After they collect their nature items during the hike, we will return to the classroom where the kids will creature their "leaf person/animal/creature" and then they can write about their "leaf friend".
