Autumn Idea Book Worksheets & Activity Sheets

AUTUMN POEM
Carve a pumpkin for Halloween. Two triangle eyes and a nose between, A smile with three or four lifelike teeth, Two above and a couple beneath. The inside pulp bakes into pie; Add cream and sugar, place oven on high. Fallen leaves I will be raking While the autumn pie is baking. Winds blow kites in the harvest sky. I can’t wait to eat pumpkin pie.

COLLECTING LEAVES
Children love to collect autumn leaves. Many can be found on the ground but some may need to be picked. Ask students to be extra careful when picking living leaves so as not to damage the tree or branches. Instruct them to find leaves with unusual colors and shapes. A display can be made in the classroom with signs noting the names of the trees. Students might also like to examine the leaves with a microscope or magnifying glass.

WORKSHEET & Sample PDF Activity

Sample PDF Activity

CHART A TREE
Select a deciduous tree on the school grounds. Have your students visit the tree in autumn, winter and spring noting the changes each season. Ask them to draw pictures of each change or take photographs and display them on the class bulletin board.

SEASONAL IMPROVISATION

Ask your students to act out the life of a leaf. The children will love pantomiming the growth of a new leaf, blowing in the wind, changing color and floating to the ground.

OH, GOLDEN LEAVES!
Oh, golden leaves, come tumbling down
To make a carpet for the town,
To fly above each busy street
And get beneath the people’s feet,
To rustle as the cold winds blow
And make a welcome for the snow,
To leave the trees all brown and bare
And clothe the cold ground everywhere.
You looked so bright and green last spring,
A bright vibrant living thing.
You’re wrinkled, crinkled, brown and gold,
You look as though you’re mighty old.
You only last for weeks and days
Because spring weather never stays
But leaves us when you’re turning gold,
Then autumn comes with wind so cold.
‘Tis then you tumble all around
To make a carpet for the ground
To make a chilly atmosphere
And shout to all, “Winter is here!”
