Upper Elementary students are actively working on an interdisciplinary project to celebrate fall and the recent Thanksgiving holiday. First, they listened to a read-aloud of The Very Last Leaf by Stef Wade and Jennifer Davidson, a delightful story about the changing of the seasons and social-emotional resilience. Then, students took a nature walk and collected fall foliage. They made a solution with glycerin and water to preserve the leaves. The leaves were immersed in the solution and remained in the “glycerin bath,” a humectant, for a few days to preserve the moisture, color, and suppleness. The leaves were used to complete the students’ literacy projects. They made their own “leaf people” characters and wrote stories to bring them to life.
