Here is a bonus challenge for the First Day of Autumn! It is really hard to believe that it is already time for the fall color and fall weather. We have had an unusual summer as far as weather and growing seasons so it should be interesting to see how the autumn months unfold.
As a way to get us thinking about the change of the seasons with our children, here is a bonus challenge you can complete on the first day of Autumn, September 22nd, 2010.
Some signs to look for:
- Dry grass and weeds
- Wildflowers-thistles, goldenrod
- Birds eating at feeders or flying overhead to migrate
- Chilly morning temperatures or dew on the grass
- Fruit ripe on trees
- Insects or webs
- Nuts, acorns, or berries
- Clouds and wind
You can use the Signs of Autumn notebook page to record your signs of autumn or you can use your own nature journal. I put together a Squidoo Lens from last year’s autumn nature/art study where you might glean some more information and inspiration this season.
