I took a walk this morning and couldn’t help noticing all the autumn leaves on the path. Once again, they’re off the branches and underfoot. My neighborhood has huge piles of leaves all raked up for the community leaf collection, and I know just where to go to find the leaves that look like the long-fingered hands of a fairy tale witch.
Depending on where you live, you might have already seen the leaves come and go, or you might be in a place where the Fall leaves don’t… well… fall. Either way, I hope you’re enjoying your November.
Here’s a video for elementary students to remind us about the reasons the leaves change in Autumn. And here’s a video for secondary students to remind us of the same thing. Go ahead — watch both, no matter your age!
Let’s honor the passing of Fall 2013 by writing some short poems about leaves. You can find your own leaves for inspiration, or you can search for images of leaves in your Discovery Education account. Post your short poems in the Comments section!
