The leaves are just starting to change and fall around us, so this is the perfect time to start doing science activities with them! I actually learned a lot while putting together this science packet. I’m not a botanist, but I did read and research when I was putting these activities together. Each activity explains the science behind it, which I think is important!
In this packet, there are activities on the following science concepts:
- Life processes
- Living things
The main science concept in this packet is investigating living things. There are activities that spend time observing and recording results. One of the activities that I loved is showing how leaves “drink” water. My kids really loved that activity!
Here are the 10 activities in this packet:
- Leaf Life Cycle (with a printable)
- Parts of a Leaf (with a printable)
- Comparing Leaves
- Crunchy Leaves (with a printable journal)
- Leaf Hunt (with a printable)
- How Leaves Change Colors
- How Leaves “Breathe”
- How Leaves “Drink” (with a printable observation sheet)
- How Leaves Get Water
- What Happens to Leftover Leaves (with a printable)
