6. Different leaves
We leaves are really important, we all do the same job of catching the sun's energy but we have many different shapes and sizes. Different shapes work better in different environments.
Keep your thinking hat on and suggestion why the two leaves are different.
Leaves all contain a chemical called chlorophyll which traps the energy in sunlight.
Look at the leaves above. What colour do you think chlorophyll is?
