Leaves: All-Natural Solar Collectors

Take a good look at tree leaves and notice the adaptations for collecting solar energy. Pupils trace the margins of five different leaves onto graph paper and count the number of squares covered. They then relate this infomation to the size of a solar panel. A detailed worksheet and teachers' notes are provided for your convenience. This, and other lessons by Power School Naturally, are top-notch!

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
