Meet The FallTweet
This is a great activity to explore your neighborhood while learning about autumn and its leaves. It has three steps: hunt, replicate, and analyze.
During the hunt, explore your neighborhood in search of interesting leaves. After getting enough leaves, apply the color-rubbing method described in the slideshow to create a 2D colored embossed replica of your leaves. And in the final step, compare your replica with the original leaf.
While admiring your kids work, take the opportunity to talk to them about plants.
