Leaf collecting has always been a favorite of mine. I loved it when I was a child and I still love it just as much today (maybe even more)! On one of our Friday nature walks we tried to collect as many different colored and shaped leaves as we could. We tried to stay on the trail around the campus, but sometimes we were tempted to take on the challenge of the tall grass!
When we got back to the classroom we sorted them by size and then by color.
They were part of our classroom for weeks before I was allowed to throw them away. Even then I had to sneak and do it!
