Leaf Rubbings

I collected some leaves from the trees in the churchyard to do some rubbings of them. It helped me notice the different shapes of them. What I learnt is that elder and ash are compound leaves and the others were all simple leaves. While I was collecting the leaves a managed to find a shield bug on a leaf. Here are some pictures of me doing the rubbings.
