This unit provides sorting mats to enhance leaf sorting in your classroom. Ask children to take a walk with their families and bring in a collection of leaves. This can also be done on the playground if there are a variety of trees there. Then observe the leaves and point out what we notice about them. Using hula hoops or large pieces of construction paper we sort and re- sort our leaves according to the following attributes:
This also includes the parts of a leaf.
