My kindergartners were given huge sheets of paper that were the colors of leaves. We talked about texture and then went on a texture scavenger hunt. We started inside the classroom and did crayon rubbing of different textures. Then we ventured outside and found some more textures. The next class, they traced a huge leaf over top of their texture rubbings and then used black paint to paint the outline of the leaf, as well as its veins.
