A Leaf Study~

We are changing it up just a little this week.
The leaves are changing colors and beginning to fall so it's the perfect time for A Leaf Study.
We headed out for the last hour before lunch yesterday morning for a leaf hunt~
 In addition to leaves, we found webs in the grass with little spiders, wonderful wooded areas to explore, beautiful rocks, limbs to hang from, and ummm.... the leaves!

After a great romp, we headed back in for lunch and a couple of surprises.
I laminated our favorite leaves to keep them safe as we handle them each day this week and finally into our journals.
We also began a list of what we are observing about Fall~
 I introduced the girls to a couple of nature books, magnifying glasses, and binoculars we will be using in our study too.
Evie was very excited to find our leaf observing trays when she woke up from her nap.
It's going to be a great week!
