Autumn Leaves Drawings and Mini Reports

The changing of trees' leaves in fall is one of the most mesmerizing and educational season changes we witness. Even if you live in a part of the world where you don't see these changes first hand, we have a way that your child can study the transformation to incorporate science, reading, art, and writing. Our daughter loved this project!

We love Autumn Leaves by Ken Robbins. It not only explains why leaves change but it also details several types of leaves with real photographs and facts about the trees. No matter what time of year it is or where you live, you can study and enjoy these fall changes with this book. 


I invited our daughter to record what she learned by sketching and writing a bit a particular tree and its leaves. I was so pleased (and a bit surprised) by how much she enjoyed this task! She got very creative coloring the leaves by blending several shades together to show the changes in progress!


I've made this Autumn Leaves Mini-Report available for our email subscribers as a freebie! You could assign a different tree to each student in your classroom or allow your own child to study leaves that interest them most.
