Do you need a simple, print-and-go way to take your leaf anatomy lesson to the next level? Maybe you'd like to enjoy a creative science project that's mess-free? Perhaps you'd like some engaging visual tools to reinforce lessons about leaf structure?

Well, this free printable set of leaf anatomy worksheets will help you do all of that and more!

Learning about and studying leaf anatomy helps us comprehend how these essential parts of plants work. And let's not forget, without leaves, there would be no life as we know it on our planet! These powerful objects produce the oxygen we breathe, after all.

When my middle schooler got to his structure of a leaf lesson for his homeschool science, I wanted a hands-on way to strengthen his understanding of the materials. I thought this 3D printable diorama featuring diagrams of the anatomy of a leaf would be perfect!

How to Make This Printable Leaf Anatomy Diorama

Your leaf anatomy diorama will be more durable (and a lot easier to work with) if you print the pages on white cardstock. I suggest printing out a few extra copies of this activity in case one of your students wants to make another one - or makes a mistake and needs a new piece of the activity.

I also recommend having these materials on hand to make the diorama:

  • scissors
  • glue or gluestick
  • tape (or double-sided tape)
  • coloring tools (if you choose to use the black-and-white version) like:
    • crayons
    • color pencils
    • fine-tip markers

To make our homeschool science activity time be a success, I've found it to be extremely helpful to make an example diorama ahead of time. I get a feel for the project and how to best assemble it. Plus, I'm able to explain the process better.

We did the following steps to make this diorama:

  1. Print out diorama kit pages on white cardstock.
  2. Pick out which style to use (color or black-and-white).
  3. Color in background and pieces (if necessary).
  4. Cut out background and pieces.
  5. Assemble the background by folding in a forward direction at all dotted lines.
  6. Apply glue on front part of each tab.
  7. Fold in all sections and adhere tabs.
  8. Use tape to reinforce tabs (if necessary).
  9. Glue and attach diorama pieces.
  10. Add glue to the tab of the label and attach to the top of diorama box.

Other ways you could use these leaf structure printables include:

After completing these activities, students can draw or write out what they learned.
