Chalk Leaves - (4th grade)

 Students made an oak leaf stencil out of a 6 x 6 folded tagboard.
They just had to draw half the leaf then cut it out to make it symmetrical.
The students could arrange their leaves as a leaf pile or a leaf wreath. Either
way the leaves had to overlap to create depth. Fall colors were the color scheme: 
red, yellow, orange, green, and brown and could be blended together. The 
leaf's center vein was draw with a black crayon

A Fall poem was hand printed on the edge of the black paper 
with white color pencil.  There were several poems the students 
could choose from. Finally, I laminated their chalked art.
