Bathroom STEM: Leaves

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Putting up STEM questions and activities on the bathroom wall is a great use of available space, while at the same time capitalizing on a captive audience.

This month we took advantage of the beautiful fall foliage to create a display about leaves. The posters ask questions such as “Which leaf is biggest?” or “How many green leaves in all?” (For some reason, this last question really caught the fancy of the preschool set. I had a surprising number of small children come up to me and say, essentially out of nowhere, “There are FOUR green leaves!” leaving me a little confused the first few times.)

I laminated the leaves, and was happily surprised by how well they kept their colors all month long. The green leaves stayed green, and the bright yellow and orange leaves, which this picture is not doing justice to, stayed quite fresh.
