Facts About Leaves

Happy Thankful Thursday to you!! May you have a thankful and fun filled day!

We are on letter Ll of the gratitude alphabet! L is for leaf.

What are you thankful that begins with the letter L?

Joey is thankful for leaves. He loves when all the leaves fall off of the trees so he can jump in the big piles of them when his parents rake them up. Leaves provide food and air to assist a plant in staying healthy. Did you know that it is not good to rake leaves up? You should mulch them up and just let them rot into the ground. It is healthy for the soil and the environment. Leaves also help make the oxygen that we breathe. Leaves are very important to us and our environment.

Do you love to jump into big piles of leaves? 


Facts about leaves:

1. Leaves are the most important part of the plant. The main function of a leaf is to provide food for the plant. This is done by photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use sunlight, carbon dioxide, chlorophyll, and water to make their own food.

2. Trees are a plant and they have many leaves.

3. Leaves make great fertilizer for your gardens.

4. Leaves are also referred to as foliage.

5. Leaves on trees also provide shade on hot days.

6. Deciduous trees lose their leaves every autumn and in the spring the leaves grow back. In the autumn the leaves are beautiful colors of yellow, gold, orange, and red. Then the leaves turn brown and fall off the tree.
