STEAM Learning Lab – Leaves and Leaf Rubbings

Today we’re going to do a fun project and learn about leaves, which are a very important part of a plant. Leaves are how a plant makes its own food!

There are all kinds of shapes and sizes of leaves, but they all do the same things and have the same parts.
