Fall is here! The season of cold winds and campfires. But what is autumn most known for? Its trees! Every year something special happens to each tree. The leaves will start to change colors, and so will other things that you might not expect. Fill out these questions at the and watch an amazing transformation! Let’s get started.
1. Find a tree. It could be anywhere, in your yard, maybe at school, or maybe just around the block.This tree is your tree. You will be observing it for the next two weeks. If you miss a day, no worries! Just keep going!
2. You will observe your tree for 14 days to see how the leaves change color, what happens to the leaves, and how it affects other life around it.
For starters, list everything you can about your tree now. This is Day One. You could record anything from the color of the bark to what kind of tree it is! Things you record don’t have to be connected to the tree’s change. This is for you to get to know your tree! You could even give it a name! (Mine is Leroy!)
