Fall Leaf, Wildflower, and/or Insect Collection
The first major assignment for the first quarter will be due October 15th. Students will need to collect a total of 30 different species of leaves, fall wildflowers, and/or insects.
The student can choose to do all three collections (with a total of 30, I will let the student decide how to split the collection up).
The student can choose to do two collections (with a total of 30, I will let the child decide how to split the collection up). The student can choose to focus on one collection (with a total of 30 in the collection).
I want the students to be creative with their collections. You can do a leaf and flower collection using books and paper towels to press the leaves/flowers. You can also take pictures with your phone/camera and print out or have your child present as a Powerpoint presentation.
Please be sure your name and grade are on the front cover of your collection. I will have books in my classroom to help identify the different species collected. The internet is also another great source for identifying samples collected. This could easily be a great way to spend some family time together in the great outdoors J
I will provide plastic slip covers for kids if they need them.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
