Trees: our Autumn environment

Trees: our Autumn environment

This animated Power Point asks the audience to consider ways in which trees are important to us. Pupils are asked to consider the changes that are happening in trees during Autumn and why we see such beautiful colours in the environment during this season. Poetry about Autumn is introduced where pupils count the syllables and spot patterns in the lines and then a descriptive paragraph about Autumn is displayed and the audience is asked to contrast how the author feels about the approach of Winter. Pupils are shown a poem about the wind and are invited to discuss how the wind is personified. Finally they are invited to write a sensory description about their favourite season. I include word documents which support the PowerPoint which could be used for homework or further investigations/creative writing. Suitable for ages 8+
