Authentic Project Ideas – Fall Leaves

IMG_20191025_115405105

Why do different trees turn different colors in the fall?  Reds, yellows, oranges…  What causes leaves to turn colors?  This season the leaves seem so much brighter and more colorful than they were last fall.  What causes leaves to be more colorful some years, and less colorful other years?

There are so many great projects to do with fall leaves.  Not only answering the questions above, but displays of leaves (labeled as to type of tree they came from), photo journals,  art projects using the leaves…

Many people like to hike and enjoy the gorgeous fall colors this time of year.  What other outdoor activities do people like to do in the fall?  If you look closely, in the picture above you can see a boat with some fishermen in it. Is fall a good time to fish?  And as always…if a discussion of fall leaves turns into a project about fishing…that is authentic teaching and learning!
