Leaf Rubbings

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: Nibley, Utah
Date Submitted: April 12, 2001

During the fall, have your students collect leaves from outside. Once inside, they can take a piece of white paper and place it on top of the leaf. Then take a crayon and color over top of it. The image of the leaf will appear now on the paper. Have your students cut them out and hang in the classroom. This is a very simple project, but small children are absolutely amazed at the results!

In science, older children can take their leaf rubbings and label what type of leaf it is. They could also exchange them with friends, before labeling, and see if others can guess the name of that leaf.
