Leaves, leaves and lots of learning....

We have been spending time investigating leaves in room 14. We have sorted and counted.  We have used them to learn about odd and even numbers and even used them as a visual reference to sketch illustrations for autumn poetry. The children made many observations as they investigated. Here are a few...We have noticed that they have veins and variations in colour. We also discussed that they are a part of plant that is a living thing and living things need water and air.  We found a lady bug hiding and we noticed that it was a brown ladybug not red...we wondered why?  Hmmm maybe a new investigation is just around the corner!!!!
