FACTS ABOUT FALL
Fall is my favorite season. The weather is cooling down and the leaves are changing colors. It is a great time to take your kids hiking and the kids might start asking you questions about leaves!
Here are some interesting facts about fall you can share with your kids while they are using these fall leaves coloring pages.
- Fall is another name for autumn. Americans usually call the season fall and the British call the season autumn.
- Autumn begins when the center of the sun crosses the earth's equator.
- The reason leaves change colors is because of cooler temperatures and less light.
- Leaves stop producing chlorophyll, which is the green pigment that helps leaves capture sunlight for photosynthesis. As the green fades from the leaves the other pigment colors shine through. This is the process of the color change in leaves during the fall season.
- There is a harvest moon during the fall. This is the full moon closest to the autumn equinox.
- Many foods are harvested during fall but the most well known “fall” foods are pumpkins and apples.
