Sorting with Leaves

We decided to go on a walk/bike and look for leaves yesterday.  With all the leaves we collected we did a sorting activity.  We sorted the leaves in several different ways, the kids each had a pile and they sorted them on the mat.  Having the mess helped with the mess of the dried out leaves, but it also helped them read and write what we were sorting.  Some we came up with include: big/small, loud/quiet, soft/hard, long/short, colorful/plain, stem/no stem.  Glad we did this yesterday as today, I am afraid we would have been blown away!
