Going on a leaf hunt is one of the early childhood activities I love the most.
We always find so many different types of leaves, even in our local neighborhood.
Looking at leaves from different (and sometimes, the same) trees is an excellent opportunity to practice visual discrimination with early learners.
To reinforce this skill, I decided to make a leaf version of our printable visual discrimination lesson – these same or different leaf worksheets!
These are wonderful for helping early learners practice recognizing similar and different objects, especially during autumn!
