Leaf Project
Due Date: 11/13/2017

LEAF COLLECTION SCIENCE PROJECT   DUE NOVEMBER 13th

Third grade has been studying about plant life in science. Now it is time to (hopefully) enjoy the last and most beautiful cycle of a plant, the fall colors. This project was assigned October 16th. Examples of former leaf projects are on display in my classroom for the students. The assignment is as follows:

1.    Collect at least 10 leaves. You may collect additional leaves for extra credit.

2.    Mount each leaf onto a separate piece of paper. Some methods might include: iron between wax paper, tape directly to the paper, place in a baggie.

3.    To the best of your ability, label each leaf with the name of the tree. Additional information about the leaf is worth bonus points and a great learning experience.

4.    Put leaf pages in alphabetical order and number the pages. Use 1 page per leaf.

5.    Create a cover page for your collection. Example: leaf rubbings and/or drawings are fun

6.    Create a table of contents and place in the proper location of the project.

7.    Include the rubric (scoring page) as the last page.

Children enjoy this activity. It can be a fun family project, especially for grandparents.  Thank-you for your assistance with this project!

Any questions, be call 457-2684 or email fieldenj@clintonschools.org
