PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A fall leaf collection project to help students practice taxonomy, scientific naming, and presentation skills.

Students will collect ten native leaves, use an online taxonomic key to identify the species, and display leaves in a book. Includes student instructions and a grading rubric.

Assign this project at least 3 weeks in advance of the due date. Here in Tennessee, it inevitably rains every weekend during prime leaf-collecting season, so keep students updated on the forecast and their responsibilities! Wet leaves do not display well.

Students can display leaves in a lot of ways, including glue, tape, laminating, using page protectors, etc... My favorite way to recommend is taping over the leaf with a layer of transparent packing tape. It shows the leaf well and preserves it. Keep some examples of student work to show next year's class.

Note: The taxonomic key recommended is for Ohio species, and works well for species native to the midwest and southeast United States. You may need a different key if you live elsewhere.

I am providing a Word file, to allow you to edit details such as point value in the grading rubric.
