    • A and B are different because …
  2. Here are two more pictures. Which one goes better with pictures A and B? Why?
C. A tree with 6 leaves in its branches. To the left of the tree trunk is a short, bumpy, green pumpkin. To the right sits a tall, orange pumpkin. D. A tree with 3 leaves in its branches. 2 leaves have fallen to the ground. A tall, orange pumpkin is to the right of the tree trunk.

Make a picture that shows another way to arrange 6 leaves around a tree. You can use the tree below or draw your own. Explain how your picture is the same as pictures A and B, and how it is different.
