Leaf Man


An Invitation to Explore Leaves


Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert is a beautifully illustrated book about a leaf man that is blown by the wind far away from home.



The children had the opportunity to explore the woods behind the school.  They gathered leaves, berries, sticks, seed pods, and acorns.  They sorted the items to be used in their project.




A beautiful display inspire children to create. 



The children used the natural materials to create their own leaf people.
