Why do leaves change colour? In this fun fall activity that integrates maths and science, kids will find out that chlorophyll plays an important role in this process. First, set up a tray with different fall leaves submerged in green sand or sugar. Then, have your child excavate the leaves with different types of paintbrushes. Have them experiment and determine which brush works best. Next, they'll examine their leaves to determine the colors. Finally, your child will use their graphing skills and fill out a bar graph with the data they have collected.
