Focus: Thinking Skills, Communication Skills

Mathematical Concepts: Similarities and Differences, Pattern, Symmetry, Shape and Measurement  

  • What do you see in world around you?
  • How might we use these materials and natural resources to express our creativity and thinking?

Lets go on a nature walk to see what we can learn…

  • What do you notice about the leaves? 
  • How are they the same? How are they different


You can choose to do any (or all) of the following with your leaves:

  • Create your own leaf man. Tell us about your creation. 
  • Draw a leaf (or leaves). Remember to observe and document like a scientist, details are important.
  • Measure a leaf. Use different materials such as bottle caps, Lego or stones to measure the length or size of your leaf.
  • Sort the leaves into groups. How will you organise your groups? By shape? colour? size? 

Share your learning with the class.
