We are so excited to be learning about Botany this year! We are focusing on leaves right now.
We are learning about pinnate venation and palmate venation.
We are learning about sedated and entire leaves. We are also learning about chlorophyll and the stomata.
In this post, we share a great list of leaf activities for kids.
It includes hands-on and sensory activities, as well as some great leaf arts & crafts.

It is always really fun to read some relevant books for every topic we study.
