A crisp breeze rustles the golden leaves just outside the window, distracting your students from today's lesson. On days like this, you kind of wish you had a good excuse to just head out to the school yard.
All good teachers know that it's important that students cover certain ground by the holiday break. After the break it's often a race to spring testing. Before the break is your best opportunity to get in some real free form learning, but it's such pretty weather. What's the solution?
Fall themed learning is one the best ways to help your students engage with the real learning they need to do this autumn. Here are few ideas that you might like to try.
Start a fall themed discussion
Do a fall themed project
Protect migrating birds from your windows
Or if all else fails, just go out and get some of those leaves to study!
