Take a walk. As you go look out for all the different types of leaves you can see.

Take a photo of them, or draw a picture of them.
Types of Leaf
How many different types of leaf did you see? Do you know what plants they are from?
You can find out about what shape the leaves of different trees are here. These are mostly for trees that grow in the UK, but if you look online there are lots of sheets for other countries too. There are also some great apps for your phone – including this free one for trees commonly found in the UK from the Woodland Trust.
Discover the Wild also have some great identification sheets by season for plants, insects, fungi etc so you can identify all sorts of things that you find on your walk!
