Small Science - Searching for leaves

Fantastic Small Science class today for 3rd graders.  We went leaf hunting - as a part of the activity on Plants.

Children learned the names of the neighbourhood trees - Gulmohur, Copper Beach, Poongam, Baadam, Indian Tulip, Neem, Peepal, Acacia etc. They observed the shape and texture of the leaves. They also felt the bark of the tree trunk. They saw the flowers and seedpods of some of the trees.
The children, natural scientists that they are, discovered a mushroom hanging upside down from a leaf, another in a hole in the tree, a multi coloured leaf, creepers and much more.

What a fantastic walk it was.
