Series D Week 39


Your Art Class Falls for Leaves


This lesson is Week 39 of the year and marks the last week of September. Fall or autumn begins on September 23 in the Northern Hemisphere. Chlorophyll production slows in the leaves of trees when the nights are longer in the fall. Then a chemical process begins that is responsible for leaves turning orange, yellow, red, maroon, and many shades of brown. This is a great opportunity to go outside and see how many different fall colors you can see. While you are at it check out the veins of the leaves, the shapes of the leaves and all the variations of color in just one leaf. Your Art Class might just fall in love with leaves of the fall.
