Third graders traced a leaf template using pencil. Students chose from oak, maple, or beech leaves. The students and I looked at pictures of leaves and we noticed that leaves have lines on them called veins. They then added the veins in the leaf drawing. Each vein created a space for a line design. Third graders added different line designs. When the students were finished, they outlined the leaf and veins in black sharpie marker. Third graders were given a choice to contnue using black sharpie or outlining their line designs in colored marker. The results were stunning!
