Fall Observations

Lesson Overview

Autumn is a time for change. As the days become shorter and cooler, what do you notice happening around you? What do you notice happening in yourself?

In this lesson, students will make observations about the changes they notice in the outside world, and learn why some leaves change colors each fall. Then, students will take their observations inward and do a body mapping activity, reflecting on how their inner thoughts and emotions may also be undergoing change.
