Landmark 11 (Celebrate Each Season)
“Tree Magic” Prior to meeting virtually with a Park Ranger we went on a leaf hunt and each student had a chance to choose a variety of leaves. We took time to put the leaves in order of colour, and noticed the different/similar shapes and colours. During the presentation, students learned trees use water, air, and sun to make food. Then we reviewed how during the fall there is less and less sun. As a result, trees can no longer make food. The green colour (chlorophyll) leaves the leaf and that is why we see different colours. The students really enjoyed a follow-up experiment with their science teacher and after reading Leaf Man they created leaf art with the leaves they gathered.
