This week, some parents and I volunteered to do Fall themed centers. Parents were quicker to jump at crafts and food, but I was thankful to do a STEM center. In my daughters 1st grade class, they had started working on bar graphs, so a leaf graph polling the class is what we did. This favorite leaf activity went very well and the kids were very receptive. They were also thrilled to answer questions, too.

The great thing about an activity like this is that it requires very little set up and very little supplies. You can also change the questions and add more depending on the age and the level of the students.

Supplies needed:

  • poster board / bulletin paper
  • glue stick and / or tape
  • markers / crayons
  • leaf cut outs (either colored by students with printable, die-cut or actual leaves from outside)
  • bar graph printable for students to complete (see below)

How to complete the Favorite Leaf Activity

Create a chart, poster or bulletin where the children can put their leaves. Make sure the leaves are placed evenly so the students can see across the rows.

In our classroom, the teacher had access to a die-cut, so to save time, she punched several leaves in 5 different colors, red, orange, yellow, green and brown. But, you can also have children collect their favorite leaf from outside, or use the printable to color their leaf their favorite color.

We asked each student to select their favorite leaf color, and write their name on it.

Then the leaf went onto our classroom bar graph.

Once all of the students placed their leaves on the chart, it was time to answer some questions.

We started with some easier questions like “which color was the most favorite?” and “which color was the least favorite?” and then moved into questions like “how many more people like red leaves than orange leaves?”

In addition to the class graph, you can also have the children create their own graph so they can practice their graph making skills.

Once they’ve completed their own bar graph, they can also answer the same questions or other questions you want them to complete.

When they are finished, they will have their very own bar graph to show the classes favorite leaf color.
