Week 3- Activity 8

word-cloud-1Fall is here! That means you should get ready for Halloween, Thanksgiving, pumpkins and anything else fall related! Get ready for the Jack-O-Lanterns illuminating your front porch, and make sure you have your Trick-Or-Treat costume ready. Spooky skeletons, spiders, and bats are about, don’t forget to be hanging up the decorations all about your house. The fall clothes are in, beanies, flannels, boots and scarves. The trees are changing too, the once lime green leaves are now shades of pumpkin orange and lemon yellow, with even a few apple red colors. Months of October and November are my absolute favorite, the crisp air is so refreshing. It’s time for autumn!

 

Will You Fall For Our Leaves?

Autumn is a big deal in Ohio.  I personally live on top of a hill, surrounded by trees.  Most of the time in the fall, when my family is driving, we get behind really slow people.  This is because of the leaves.  Tourists will travel  across states,  just to see the leaves. I know it sounds crazy, but they truly are beautiful. Every year in Ohio, there is a time period called Autumn, or fall, that usually lasts 2 -3 months. If you don’t have Autumn where you live, you can go online to read more. Next time you’re on a vacation, ask your parents if you can go to Ohio. You just might fall for our leaves.

Good places to get these supplies would be your backyard, a forested park, the old wood shed and the attic.
