                      What does your leaf look like today?
         What other things did you notice?

Today the leaves are very dry.

My leaf has a new hole in it!

The tree is beginning to change at the top.

I noticed the tree has more yellow on the south side today.

Many leaves are on the ground today.
 


 

    Use the vocabulary to tell about YOUR Tree..

Examples:
The tree is a producer because it makes sugar in the leaves.

The leaves are green because they have chlorophyl.

This tree is in a Temperate Biome.

Herbivores can eat my tree!

Carnivores do not eat my tree.

My tree is not in a Polar Biome.

Reflect about your tree. What questions do you have?
 
I was thinking about the tree because I looked and it is the same color as yesterday.  I think the Sun helps to make the same color.           - Piotr Wojewoda
