Is there a site to go to to identify leaves?

    My son has a biology class assignment to collect 25 leaves and identify them. Of course now most of the leaves are all dried. However, looking at the leaf identification sites that I have found, it seems we need to know the name first to find a picture of a leaf. Of course physical books would make it easier, but I found very few at the library, and the ones I have at home are mostly flower books.
    Thank you for your help.

    I can't help you with a web site, but if you soak the leaves in a little glycerin when first picked, it will help keep them from drying out. :)
