Autumn 2010 OHC #5: Autumn Leaves

OHC Autumn

I have been a little behind on posting our Outdoor Hour Challenges each week. 

This is our Autumn Leaf study. 

Check out the host of the OHC at the Handbook of Nature Study blog and have fun!


There are wooded areas around our home so it was easy to find a variety of trees and leaves.

Here are our Tree and Leaf comparison worksheets:


A7’s Tulip Poplar and the Oak Tree leaves (along with a few princess stickers).


M5’s Maple and Pin Oak leaves.  She also drew an acorn!

We made a Venn Diagram on our white board to compare and contrast the leaves but I did not get a picture of it.  The girls also made some leaf rubbings, raked the leaves and of course – jumped in them!

We use the book Handbook of Nature Study for our challenges.  The Nature Study details and worksheets are posted here on Barb’s blog – check it out!



  1. I've tagged you!!
    (if you have time)

  2. Love the drawings! They did a great job!

  3. Great photos! I smiled when I saw that they are still in short sleeves. :)

    Your leaves are really pretty and some are very big...I loved seeing the journals. What a great job they did on comparing and their sketches.

    Thank you so much for sharing your link with the OHC.


Thank you for leaving a comment!
