What a beautiful fall day we had on Wednesday! It was the perfect day to learn about the four seasons and what is happening in nature as we transition from summer to fall. After our brisk morning hike, we gathered at the stone story circle to discuss the four seasons and to begin our "Tree of Seasons" project.
They did such a great job decorating the portion of the tree representing Fall.
In addition to shorter days and lower temperatures, the group noticed that the leaves were changing colors in the fall and they were beginning to drop from the trees. We collected a bunch of different leaves and after examining their textures, thickness, color, and shape they sorted into different categories.
After our warm snack of homemade oatmeal with brown sugar and cinnamon warmed our bellies we spent some time time writing in our journals and doing some leaf rubbings.
It was a fantastic Autumn morning!
See you next week!
