    We have looked several different websites that have increased our understanding of the fall season.  Now we are going to imagine that you are the teacher in the classroom.  As the teacher you job will be to teach your students about the fall leaves.  You should draw a picture of the trees and the leaves in the fall.  Be sure to add the fall colors so your students will see a difference in the color of the leaves in the fall and other seasons.  Also add that the leaves fall from the trees in this season.  Be creative as you create a picture of fall for your students so they will learn that fall is FUN!
