Are you a leaf reader? They tell you their name just from the way they look:

We looked at them under a microscope in our lab:

Leaves have veins.

Why?

“To help the leaves get water!” -Sophia

“Like people! People have veins!” -Kelly

We made rubbings of the leaves and labeled their parts. We looked in books to find what kinds they were.

What colors do they turn? Why do they turn colors? When? How? Is it magic? Fairies? Does someone paint them?
