I needed this for an all-adult forest hike I led recently at a native-plant conference, so I hope it might come in handy for some of you too.
"The way leaves change is an amazing process and, like all things in nature, one that we should understand and appreciate! I was recently asked by a 3rd grade teacher to come up with an activity that helped explain fall transitions and I have since done it with a variety of elementary school ages.
I am going to explain the way I do this activity with kids, but I hope you will read on even if you do not have any other reason just to learn more about why leaves change color and fall every year! Also if you are working with kids, keep in mind that you might have to make this more or less complicated depending on your age group!"
