Living in Florida, I often don’t realize it is fall. It seems like all the Halloween and fall décor is up way too early, then I realize it is actually October! Seasons just aren’t the same here. Fall was one of my favorite seasons when I lived in New England. I miss the crisp weather, the vibrant leaves, and apple picking.
The book Autumn Across America by Seymour Simon gives me fall nostalgia. This book has beautiful, vivid photographs. I love how this book talks about how fall can look different in different places around America. This book also does a fabulous job of describing how autumn progresses. I created this fun flip-flap graphic organizer for you to use with your students to help them track how Autumn changes.
You can have your more advanced or upper elementary students complete this activity independently or in centers, or as a whole class activity for younger elementary. It is a great addition to any fall-themed bulletin board. If you use it in your classroom, I’d love for you to send me photos!
