Scare crows and Autumn wreaths were a part of our learning about the Autumn or Fall Season. What happens during this time of year that a scare crow is used for? Harvest!  Pumpkins, Other winter squashes, Corn, Nuts, Berries, Apples, Pears, Hay . . . They all must be protected from the many kinds of birds. We also learned about  changes taking place in Nature – How leaves change from green to golden yellows, reds and browns before swirling down in the brisk autumn wind to the multicolored ground. This section included a series of Social Studies lessons about the European Pilgrims and Native Americans.
