Teach your kids all about leaves and trees when you use these leaf investigation printables in your fall science center and beyond. These hands-on activities are a great addition to your leaf-themed, fall-themed, and tree-themed unit or lesson plans, and the printables are specifically designed to be used with young kids. Kids can learn about how trees grow, the life cycle of trees, and can conduct a scientific investigation with the printables and ideas. This set provides opportunities for science, math, and literacy learning in a fun, hands-on developmentally appropriate way.
