Fun leaf ideas anyone?

Take the kids leaf collecting. Encourage them to find as many different sizes, shapes and colors as possible.
Press them between heavy books with paper between (to protect books) for at least a week. Then use the leaves to sort, measure, and use for art projects such as collages. Two of my favorite books for this unit are "Leaf Man" by Lois Ehlert, someone mentioned that one, and "Look What I Did With a Leaf" by Sohi. Last year we entered the Scholastic leaf art contest and one of my students won with her collage! Have fun with this!
