Decorating for Autumn!

Ah.....the colors of autumn.

Create a seasonal feel of falling leaves right in your classroom! (No need to write names on each hand...it's a community effort and fun to wonder who's hand it is.)

Trace a hand on fall-colored construction paper. Cut out. Punch a hole. Thread through hole. Hang from ceiling.

"For a new generation, nature is more abstraction than reality. Increasingly, nature is something to watch, to consume, to wear – to ignore."  Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods pg.6
