This fun activity helps children to learn about leaves, trees, plants and different shapes.
Working in small groups, children compete to collect examples of different types of leaf that are shown on a sheet. This is followed by a “bingo” session and the team that matches the most leaves with the sheet wins.
The activity is concluded with a question and answer session that gets the children to think and learn about trees and plants. Why do trees have leaves? Why do trees grow so tall? What do all living things need to survive? Why do trees lose their leaves in winter? How many species of tree can they see? etc.
This activity lasts 15-20 minutes and works best if children are in groups of 6 or less, with each group supported by an adult.
