Montessori Botany - Leaf Cabinet. This cabinet has three trays with 6 different leaf forms per tray.
This is a set of cards I made for Xander to learn about, and sort Conifer and Deciduous trees along with a description.
This is a leaf chart that I found with a great deal of additional leaf shapes.
I found this leaf shape chart for FREE here, and it is a beautiful match to our cabinet and materials.
We made books from more leaf rubbings, and cabinet leaf insets.
The video explains how to read a cross section of a tree.
I also put together a selection of wood samples, and a small cross section for him look at. We found some of the examples in our yard, and in furniture around the house.
I also included mdf, ply wood and particle board samples, we will check out the process of making these products a little later.
We have lots of activities to get through, and now that we are getting some nice weather, we will continue these activities outside.
This post is a continuation of this Botany post 1.
