Go for a short walk


  • Go for a short walk to a green space near you. Even in cities there are many green spaces and many streets are lined with trees. It’s easy to walk past these areas day in and day out and stop noticing your surroundings


Step 2: Leaf shapes

Below are examples of 3 easily identifiable types of tree common to the UK.

  • See if you can identify them where you are, by looking at the leaf shapes. Record your discovery – You could draw round each leaf, sketch it, take a rubbing or photograph it
