Fall Leaf Hunt

The beauty of Fall is all around us, therefore a Leaf Hunt was fitting. We began with three pages all are free, one from my favorite Nature curriculum: Nature Detective out of the UK.

The other from ABC teach, a great resource that I get for $20 a year through Homeschool Buyers Coop
but you can get this worksheet free here: Leaves Memory Game

The last one from Ellen J McHenry

Still trekking the Earth in my "Foot Gloves" Five Fingers

My older children also used this page to learn about the shape and venation of the leaf:
Leaf Morphology Chart

I made a chart that they could fill in the parts of the leaf, one is laminated for repeated use and the other one un-laminated filled in.

Then we cut out our leaf cards and matched them up with the leaves we collected.

  1. What a fascinating way to explore leaves. Your children look as though they're loving every minute!

    1. I'm smiling because I enjoyed it also! I appreciate all seasons, but, All Praises due to God for the beauty of Fall.

  2. Fabulous resources! Thanks for sharing so many links and ideas! It looks like you had a wonderful family outing. Thanks for linking up with Montessori Monday. I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page and pinned it to my Autumn Leaf Unit Study Board at

    1. Deb, I needed to add Montessori Monday as an inspiration because I am always inspired by your different unit studies including the leaf unit.

  3. What a great activity! I love how you displayed your leaves on the window!

    Thanks for linking up to TGIF! Have a great week,
    Beth =-)
