3rd Grade Science

Our 3rd grade is deep into their living things unit. They have been discussing the changes that take place in nature and the adaptations that take place as the seasons change, most recently forcusing on leaves and why they change color in the fall. They went for a nature walk and collected leaves and met under various trees to discuss if it was an evergreen or deciduous. Our students discussed what they noticed about the leaves and trees on our school property, collected and counted their leaves, made a tally chart of the colors they collected and filled in their leaf collection journal. It was a great day for this science lesson!
