Mission Activity
Clyattville Elementary School, Pre-K

We are going to create a class book illustrated by YOU!  We will take all the information we've learned through the websites we've visited to create our own book depicting the changes in trees during the fall season. Use the website About Fall to help when creating the illustration. We will include a picture of ourself next to the tree participating in an activity you enjoy doing during fall.  Students will dictate what they are doing in the picture so the teacher may write down the activity on the page with the illustration.

       The TopicQuest Page has some links to look at for information, Fall into Fall
