On This Spot
As the days grew shorter they collected leaves and revisited the spots, noting changes. They identified trees, finding common and Latin names.
Students created their own herbaria containing labeled collections of leaf specimens. They inked leaves and did rubbings to understand leaf structures, making rice paper covers for the folders.
Enjoy the collections. They should last for many years if kept in a cool, dry place.
In the spring, we'll use our research results to label the trees and shrubs around the school.
