A little more about leaves

Nothing inspires us more to do Botany studies than a nice walk through the neighborhood, on a fine Spring morning.

Today our project was very simple. Walk, take our time, stop as many times as we needed (i.e. every time we found something interesting) and come back home with a very diverse collection of leaves.

Back at home, we observed, described, identified. And we marvel at the wonderful details.

We use our window as a "back light board". The children were amazed to see all the details!

The next step: Pressing them and placing them in our folders.
