Learning with Leaves

This simple set of activities, Learning with Leaves, is inspired by the humble leaf, reinforcing the Eden Project mantra that outdoor learning is easy, cheap and doesn’t need tonnes of planning.

Leaves are great! In Learning with Leaves there are plenty of opportunities to use them to bring maths alive.

This lesson enables students to estimate and measure leaves in a number of ways, and learn different techniques to measure a complex shape whilst thinking about fair tests and how to organise and display their data.

They will explore perimeter, area, histograms and dimension all in a wonderfully practical way, typical of Eden Project lessons.
