Get Learning: Identifying leaves

Wednesday 22nd May 2019

To learn more about some of the common trees we will find in our parks, woodland and gardens. The Woodland Trust has a number of free downloadable identification guides which you can find at woodlandtrust.org.uk.

You will need to get outside and visit local woodland or space and in small groups ask the children to find a ‘leaf’ for each of the following (you could add to this list):

  • with 5 or more points
  • with smooth edges
  • with more than one colour on it
  • that is waxy or rough

Using the identification guides from the Woodland Trust can the children identify the tree from the leaf using the guide? Now ask the children to locate the tree(s) each of the leaves have come from?
