    Find a variety of leaves with different vein patterns. Then have your students choose one of the leaves and place it under a sheet of copy paper. With a crayon or pencil have them lightly rub over the top of the leaf. You could have them do several different leaves on the same paper.

    Once this is done discuss how food travels from the leaves to nourish all parts of the plant. This is a great intro to photosynthesis.
