Well, my class so far has received leaves from NY, KS, CT, and MA. I had made a post about 2-3 weeks ago seeking leaves from different regions of the USA. The leaves are GORGEOUS; thank you! Posting the idea on here was one of the best I could have made. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Hescollin, I LOVED that you sent your leaves in a band-aid box. I had this poker face on because I thought the package had something of an odd shape, and then when I cut the front part off, I saw the band-aid box underneath!!! :lol: My kids LOVED the one brown leaf you sent with the seeds. Okay, I have a question for everyone.... How can I explain to my kids why trees are different (or similar for the NY, MA, and CT leaves) amongst the regions of the United States? Why do some trees grow in places and not in others? Where do these leaves get these intriguing shapes from? Thank you again, and I appreciate your help. My tree-I.Q. is kind of low.
