    Leaf Activity

    You and the children can take part in a fun leaf tracing activity to learn about fall. For this activity you will need a sheet of thin tracing paper for each student and a piece of colored chalk for each student.

    To begin this activity, take the class on a trip around the school to hunt for leaves. Allow the students to pick up leaves they like. The bigger the leaves are, the better the tracing will turn out.

    After everyone has picked some leaves, return to the classroom and hand out the tracing paper and chalk. Have each student lay the leaves flat on a table and place the piece of tracing paper of the top of the leaves. Next, have them lay the chalk lengthwise over the paper and rub it over the top of the leaf to trace the outline of the leaf. It will show all the leaves detail. Afterwards, allow the students to hang their leaf projects around the classroom to decorate for fall.
