Evergreen or Not?

In this activity your class will collect and identify leaves and look at the difference between deciduous and coniferous / evergreen leaves before answering some questions to get them thinking about the impacts that trees losing their leaves could have on the environment.

This session is best done in autumn when there is a significant difference between the trees. It’s also important to ensure that there are coniferous / evergreen trees in the area where you’re doing this activity.

Once the students have completed the sheet we suggest they are laminated to make them last. It can make a fantastic display!

Equipment needed:

- Resource sheets

- Internet access / tree identification sheets or books

Outdoor Spelling Task Cards
