Leaf Match


Use these two activities to challenge students' visual/matching abilities.

  • Gather a variety of leaves of different shapes. Trace each leaf onto construction paper. Cut out two of each leaf shape. Paste one of each pair of leaves to a piece of cardboard. Mix up the other set of leaf shapes. Let children match the leaf shapes.
  • Cut pairs of leaf shapes from various colors of construction paper. Give each child a leaf shape. Ask children to find the person with his/her matching leaf (color and shape).
