Landmark 9 (Special Outdoor Place 2X/Month)
We wondered why leaves change colours and fall off the trees. This started our Leaf Inquiry and off we went to our favourite place in the neighbourhood “Purple Park”! When we arrived at the park we noticed that some leaves had already started to change colour and fall off the trees. We had a scavenger hunt using our special clipboards to find and identify different leaves as well as other nature items. We gathered many leaves, acorns, rocks and pine cones and headed back to school. Once back at school we used our magnifying glasses to explore our nature items further and watched some videos and read books about leaves changing colour. We completed our leaf inquiry by creating a butterfly out of the nature items that we found! We went back a few more times to Purple park to look for signs of animals getting ready for winter. We discovered many squirrel’s nest high in the trees as well as some ducks who were preparing to head south. We love going to this favourite place and discover many new cool things when we visit! We are excited to see how our special place will change over the next few months with winter approaching!
