We used the fall leaves you collected to make leaf rubbing collages. We had lots of leaves which we shared with everyone in our class. We made rubbings, cut them out, and glued them together to make collages. The collages are so beautiful!
We also learned more about why leaves change color in the fall. The cooler temperatures cause the chlorophyll (which is green) to drain from the leaves which reveals the other colors!
The kids love these type of projects! I love to see them get creative with projects that combine multiple subjects like art, literacy, and science as well as fine motor skills and concentration/focus.
