"...and he would gather her leaves and make them into crowns and play king of the forest..." writes Shel Silverstein in his book The Giving Tree.
We read the book and discussed the relationship between the young boy and a tree.
This leaf project is our way of saying thank you to The Giving Tree.
Student comment: "I wanted to paint the leaves to make the tree beautiful."
The Giving Tree was first published in 1964 written and illustrated by Shel Silvestein.
This book has been translated into more than 30 languages.
We used cotton balls dipped in paint for our leaves.
