It is beginning to look and feel like fall around here! In an effort to blend Isaac's love for taking pictures with a little learning, we made up a new game called Hunting for Signs of Fall.
The way we play is pretty simple:
-Isaac gets to walk around the yard with the camera strapped to his wrist.
-Whenever he sees something that reminds him of Fall he can take a picture of it.
-After taking the pictures we load them onto the computer and talk about what he found.
The last step is my favorite because once again I get to see his thinking as he tells me why each picture reminds him of Fall.
Here are a few examples from our first game:
|A dirty welcome mat. Apparently Fall is a dirty season because we get to spend so much time outside. And after the rain we got last week we have lots of mud to go around!|
|A rake with leaves.|
|A bucket of rocks and sticks. Isaac informed me this is because beavers use sticks to make their houses for winter. That was a pretty good answer to me!|
This will a fun game to continue through out the fall. I can already imagine pictures of pumpkins, apples at the local orchard and garbage bags full of leaves!
