When the weather started to turn cooler our girls had so many questions about the weather and the trees and why this happens. We read books and researched on our smart board the characteristics of the fall season. The big words that your girls know are oxygen or gas and chlorophyll. When the leaves started to fall we had more fun walking through them and watching them fall in the breeze, especially on our walks to the lunchroom. We took a nature walk, painted trees with leaves, did leaf rubbings, sorted leaves, tore up paper to make trees and leaves. Your girls know why the leaves fall!
One of our nature walks----
Sorting leaves by size color and shape-----
Creating a picture with our collected leaves-----
Using our small motor to tear the trees and leaves-----
I have told all the girls to rake leaves and jump into them when they are in a pile. We read a book about jumping into piles of leaves. Have fun!
