This week the Knee High Naturalists explored all things autumn. We practiced taking turns during our group conversation about signs of autumn and then read It’s Fall by Linda Glaser. In the book we discovered that colder days, nuts and seeds, and colorful leaves are all signs of fall. We used this as inspiration for our art project where we painted with acorns.
We then set out on our hike to search for signs of fall and fill treasure boxes with autumn textures, which we called touches. We found smooth and bumpy leaves, hard rocks, crunchy grass, and pillow-soft seeds.
We ended our day exploring along Jack’s Creek where we guessed which natural objects would float, climbed trees, and played a lively game of hide-and-seek.
See you next week!
