Autumn has already begun to bestow its beauty on us in various shades of orange, red, yellow, and green. We will celebrate the beauty of this month beginning with an experiment to extract the colors out of a leaf and discuss why leaves change color. We will also learn about the parts of a leaf and various leaf shapes, and to identify the different types of leaves that we see every day on our playground. You may even find a leaf rubbing, a marble painted leaf or a leaf book come home in your child’s backpack in the coming weeks. We would love to have your child share a cool autumn leaf they find (on the ground) on a hike, a trip to the park or in your backyard. Happy hunting!
