Good-bye gorgeous summer plants. Hello fall pumpkins. In most parts of the world the season is starting to change. Actually, that is a great authentic project right there…is the season changing from summer to fall all over the world? In which parts of the world is the season changing from summer to fall? Do the seasons change in all parts of the world? What season is it changing to? Why? What causes seasons to change? Are we closer/farther away from the sun? (Most children will answer yes to this question…great authentic follow-up here.)
In many parts of the world we will lose our beautiful summer plants soon. What will they be replaced with? What grows well when the weather cools? What should be planted now? What kinds of decorative plants? Crops? Where? So many authentic ways to go with this… Enjoy what’s left of the summer (or winter)!
