Fall Leaves Matching activity is great for visual discrimination practice, and can spark discussions about nature and science. 👍 We picked some leaves when we went out for a nature walk almost 2 months back. Then sorted out the leaves with same shapes to use for this activity. With the rest we made a Placemat.
What you need
- Fall leaves – matching pairs, different sizes & shapes
- Dry the leaves, laminate and cut around the edges. If your not planning on reusing the leaves you can use them as is.
- I laminated mine and its been 2 months now and they still look good.
- Give the leaves to your LOs & let them find the matching pairs.
Miss A(3yrs) & Miss D(2yrs) showed much interest in this activity. I laminated 12 leaves out of which 5 pairs matched, the other 2 leaves was just to set up some difficultly level. Miss A was able to match the pairs with no help. Miss D enjoyed looking at the leaves and feeling them. We spoke about the different colors, sizes and shapes and why leaves change color and fall out. It was very interesting to see them ask and talk about nature. 😀 Every now and then Miss A asks for the leaves to do this activity. I wish i had more pairs for her to match.
