Today is a perfect day to be backyard explorer!
I love Fridays, mainly because it's our more relaxed school day. Today just seemed liked a perfect day to study about fall & leaves. My girls love to rake leaves and jump in them and they love to do leaf rubbings. I wondered if they understood why leaves change colors in fall. Today was a perfect opportunity to play with leaves and learn about them.
Me: "Girls why do leaves change color in the fall?"
Oldest DD: "Because, all the good stuff in the leaves go to the branches and roots to get ready for winter."
Well I'm sure by the good stuff, she must mean nutrients. :)
Middle DD: Because it is fall!
Youngest DD: Because they just do!
I have found some great resources for learning about Fall & leaf identification. Hope you enjoy them.

Gather leaves, Paste on jar, insert tea light, & Enjoy!
