Students will use science inquiry skills to explore leaves! Have students bring in leaves to gather a collection, then set up 6 stations where students will use inquiry skills to explore and take notes. Labs are easy to set up and can be done in 1-2 class sessions. Other than leaves, the only tools you need are: crayons, rulers, and a microscope.
Students really enjoy the stations since they brought in the leaves that are being used. It gives them a sense of ownership in the activity. It is also a great way to make sense of science inquiry skills vocabulary.
