Product Details

Twenty-six real tree leaves have been collected and assembled into this extraordinary kit. Studies include: classifying objects, identifying leaves using a simple key, creating leaf art, and leaf morphology and adaptation. The kit includes 26 separately packaged and labeled leaves. A thorough instructor's manual includes the eight reproducible activities, teaching tips, study questions, and a pictorial glossary of leaf terms. A 61-page tree finder book facilitates field activities and the identification of any leaves that students collect on their own.
