Fall provides so many opportunities for learning in nature.  Living in San Diego we don't see the changing of seasons like so many other parts of the country, but there are still numerous learning opportunities with leaves.  Now that we are done with the third unit of My Father's World Kindergarten I have compiled a list of activities to learn about leaves, both from us and around the web.

14 Activities to Learn about Leaves

The best part of our leaf study was learning about how the leaf needs to remain on the plant in order to grow and thrive.  In the same way if we remain in Jesus we will live and grow.  The words to remember for the unit were, "I will live and grow in Jesus."
