STEAM | 25 April 2016Going on a Leaf Hunt Share article facebook twitter google pinterest Summer should be called “the season for which everyone waits.” Everyone loves sun, sand, baseball, and leaves. Hold on a second…leaves?? While usually reserved for Fall fun, leaves can be just as enjoyable in the summer—especially if you go on a leaf hunt! Nature’s Day: Out and About will show you just how much fun. In Nature’s Day: Out and About, one activity sure to bring summer smiles is a leaf hunt! Kids can go hunting and as they find a type of leaf and check it off the list, they’ll be learning while looking. Look at the lines, or veins, along the surface of each leaf. They carry the food to the tree but they also give the leaf its shape. Nature’s Day: Out and About becomes an interactive leaf journal by allowing the leaf hunter to record his own finding. Using the descriptions provided for the pictured leaves… …leaf hunters can draw and describe the leaves they find too! This takes a science-based activity and incorporates writing. If readers want to take the fun even further, they can use the leaves they find to create leaf rubbings using this activity. Look out Fall foliage, Summer is coming to kick off the leaf fun!
