Second grade botanists began their study of plants with a focus on leaves. We looked at leaves that were a variety of sizes, shapes, patterns, textures, and colors. Wow, our God values creativity and diversity!
Leaves, as well as many other things in nature, can be divided equally through a line of symmetry. We explored symmetry with mirrors. We drew pictures on one side of a line, and then placed a mirror on the line of symmetry to see the other side. Today we had science with a touch of math and a dab of art!
