Today we ventured outside our kinder to explore our local community by walking around the block. We have been discussing as a group changes in our environment and noticed that some trees loose their leaves ( Deciduous) and some don’t ( Evergreens)The children knew this meant it was Autumn time and that after Autumn came winter. We looked at photos of a cycle for a deciduous tree . We were fascinated by how the leaves change colours to red, orange, yellow, purple or brown. We decided to collect some so we could take a closer look and use them in our program We explored the different shapes, colours, the way the felt, smelt and the sounds they made under our feet. We even found a tree that had no leaves totally bare. We are planning to use our collection of natures items in our making at kinder.
