The classifying leaves activity from Two Little Seeds is a wonderful Montessori-oriented botany activity for autumn. It’s a great activity to do in the summer as well. It adds interest for preschoolers and early elementary children by combining a leaf-collecting activity with matching leaf cards.

If you’re very limited by the types of trees where you live, you can always match leaf cards with photos of trees and leaves. Of course, if you are able to go on a nature walk with your child to collect leaves to match with the cards, that’s the best way to make a fun and memorable leaf classifying activity.
Have you collected leaves with your child?
