I am obviously WAY behind. We just got around to making leaf rubbings with the leaves I put in a book several weeks ago. We have been snowed in by 8 inches of snow on top of a layer of ice, so I finally decided to get them out.
My son wasn't quite figuring out how to hold the crayon sideways to make a good rubbing, but he enjoyed coloring, and then crunching the leaves when I was done. :) We'll have to tuck this activity away for next fall and maybe do it before we are one-fourth of the way through December!
- Walk and look for different colors, shapes of leaves.
- Talk about the life cycle of leaves and trees.
- Identify characteristics of leaves (colors, shapes, textures)
