P.L.A.Y.-filled companion activity adventure suggestions (long):
- Challenge: Treasurer hunt style -can you see Laura’s suggestions of what a leaf can be – tree topper, rain stopper, food maker, etc.? An opportunity to take a moment to notice in nature and create a check list in your journal.
- Super Challenge: Walk about, wonder and wander, and see if you can add to Laura’s list of what a leaf can be. Example: a “leaf munchie” = goaties in our barnyard were eating them like potato chips!
- Super-Duper Challenge: Fall Fun = make a leaf pile when the trees have released them to the ground. Estimate how many leaves it takes to make the pile by filling a small bucket or container and counting the leaves. How many buckets worth do you think you have? How many leaves does it take to make your “pile grower”?
