We read many books for the autumn project. Our favorite was Why Do Leaves Change Colors?  It was written by Betsy Maestro. This book with its beautiful illustrations inspired us to think about the many colors of fall. We decided to make graphic organizers using The Colors of Fall as our theme. The children also wrote a little bit to explain what they chose for The Colors of Fall.
