Why and how do leaves change color in the fall?
This lesson uses an untamed science video on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyj7kyYX_gQ) to study the basics of leaf color change. This lesson can be taught on its own or in the middle of a unit about photosynthesis and the role of chlorophyll.
For this lesson each student will record vocabulary, summarize main ideas and create a comic about why and how leaves change color using the information they learn form the untamed science video about autumnal leaf color change.
The combination of strategies aligned with the common core and relevance to student's lives make this a lesson you can use!
