youcubed: Pick up leaves (K-3)

You can take a stroll through your neighborhood or a park (maintaining social distance!) and pick up leaves along the way, then sort and count them while you’re out or back at home.

Consider sorting using different attributes as many times as you want. This activity can be about collecting and counting anything you might see on a walk. We encourage you to ask your students what they want to count, choice is a catalyst for creativity!
