Instructions:

1. On a nice fall day, bring the children outside and go on a walk.
Determine the direction of the walk by giving a child the beanbag and
having the child toss it in one direction.
2. Walk with the children to the beanbag, and invite the children to look
around that area and describe season-related things they see. Are
squirrels burying nuts? Are leaves changing colors and falling? Write
down what the children describe.
3. After the children finish describing what they see in that location, give
the beanbag to another child to toss in a different direction. Go to the
beanbag and repeat the process.
4. Bring the children back inside, and give them paper, markers, crayons,
and so on, and invite them to make drawings of season-related things
they saw while outside. Read some ideas to the children if they are not
sure what to draw.
5. Hang the children's pictures in the classroom.
Assessment

l Can the children describe things happening in the world that relate to
the fall season?
l Can the children recall things they saw outside when they come back
inside?
l What fall-related images are the children drawing?
