Fun With Fall Leaves

Over the last week we have been talking about why leaves change color.  On Friday, we did this really cool science meets art project (STEAM).  The kids thought it was so cool as they watched their plain white coffee filter turn into a beautiful autumn leaf.  It was really easy and something you could do at home. The leaves turned out beautiful and are hanging on our windows in the classroom.

First we made a circle of color using a marker on our coffee filter leaf.

Next, we folded it in half three times and dipped just the end in water.

We waited and watched as the color traveled all the way to the ends of the leaf.

Then, we took it out and unfolded our beautiful fall leaves!
