Students will compare and collect different types of leaves on a fall walk through the woods. While describing and classifying leaves based on structure, color, and other properties, students will learn about common trees in New England, how trees use light to grow, and how they adapt to winter. Through hands-on activities and experiments, students will study the relationship between fall colors and the changing seasons. This program is only offered in the Fall.
