Collect leaves, if possible find some skeleton leaves. (Leaves where only the veins are left)
View a tiny part of the leaf under a microscope.
Write or draw your observations.
Find out what fractals are.
Locate pictures of things that have fractals. e.g. a bunch of broccoli, branches on a tree, a river system, the human body (obtain a sketch of the body system displaying the nervous system or veins) and a spider web.
Make a leaf-collage from the leaves you collected.
